Quickly install software bundle after installing Ubuntu

Here is a quick way to install the most commonly used software easily after installing Ubuntu from scratch. This can save you some time. What’s currently in the bundle: VLC, Texmaker, Terminator, nautilus-open-terminal, Filezila, Shutter, Wine, Spotify, unrar, zip, oracle java 7, compiz, Chromium, Dropbox, Open ssh, Netflix,  Adobe Reader

The credit actually goes to Sigurgrímur Jónsson for building this script. You can read more about it here:


If you don’t need something in the package, you can certainly modify the script and add or remove it. I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and it seems to work.


  1. Download the script from here
  2. Rename the script from gimsi_install.txt to gimsi_install
  3. Grant execute permission (chomod 755) and run it

Here is a quick video:
