Get Automatix without the ticks with EasyUbuntu!

15 09 2007

Much like Automatix, Easy Ubuntu is a script (with a GUI) that will automatically download and install proprietary drivers, codecs, video players, flash, java, MS Fonts, and even skype. Unlike controversial Automatix, Easy Ubuntu uses apt, backs up any system changes made,  and won’t edit your sources.list file unless you allow it to do so.

“EasyUbuntu is an easy to use (duh!) script that gives the Ubuntu user the most commonly requested apps, codecs, and tweaks that are not found in the base distribution – all with a few clicks of your mouse.”

Though it is still in alpha, and I’d still recommend using envy for video drivers. It’s a good thing to keep in mind for the upcoming release of Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon in October.

Hey all, we’re back and planning to keep up the regular routine of posts! did you miss me?

Pause of posts

4 09 2007

Yes, here at Back Door Life we are taking a bit of a break. I have some personal things going on and I can’t say with any certainty that there will be any more posts for the next week or so. I will notify you all when this “break” is over.

Thanks all,
