AFTER INSTALLING KARMIC ?

After a fresh install of ubuntu, it is difficult for a common user to install essential packages and codecs manually.What if we have a script to do it for you . Yes , Here it is... just run it after your fresh install of ubuntu karmic koala.
All credits goes to Piotr Miros 'Epul' and translation to english from web upd8.

The script works on Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala only (both 32bit and 64bit) and can automatically or manually (it asks you if you want each application / customization) install or configure the following:

- adds the recommended repositories,
- downloads and installs the latest updates,
- installs Ubuntu Tweak,
- installs codecs, web browser plugins (Java, Flash),
additional support for archives (RAR, 7-Zip) and additional fonts
- installs MPlayer,
- sets Mplayer and Totem character encoding to Central / Western European (Windows-1250),
you can disable this by removing lines: 64 and 69,70,71,72,73,74,75,
- uninstalls Empathy and replaces it with Pidgin"
