Thank you, adding restricted drivers and codecs can be a pain.

Will keep post this for reference whenever I need to do such thing again.

Thank you for this info ;) i never thought this could be done that easily i remember when i last time installed ubuntu it was really a big pain to setup the drivers so thanks and i think this should be stickied.

Automatix Alternative?

What is Ultamatix? I would like to start off by saying the software if you so choose is based off "Automatix", but sold out to pioneer linux so no such thing anymore.

:cheers:

wget http://ultamatix.com/download/ultamatix-1.8.0-3_all.deb



sudo dpkg -i ultamatix-1.8.0-3_all.deb

This will install all the packages required for ultamatix.

This seems a good looking app.

Think I'll try it later, gives a bit too much work to configure a new ubuntu machine the way we want it and maybe this can help save time.

Ultamatix is designed to work only with Ubuntu Ultimate Editon 1.8 & Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron)32/64 bit.

Very cool alternative.

Just typed as you mentioned:
wget http://ultamatix.com/download/ultamatix-1.8.0-3_all.deb
And double clicked on the .deb file to install.


I specially like the option to enable DVD playback, many friends of mine were complaining about this default limitation on Ubuntu.

Now it's working like a breeze.
