Postby rickdtweet » 07 Oct 2014, 17:46

I hope to write something useful for you, and also for me of course, to remind what are the working softwares used in the everyday life in our LUbuntu distro. I've tried to divide them in categories too.
Please suggest everything you have already tested as well.

- LibreOffice
- Adobe Flash Player
- Adobe Reader
- OpenJDK 7 + Web Panel

Internet, Mail & IM (+ IRC):

- Mozilla Firefox
- Chromium
- Mozilla Thunderbird
- HexChat
- BitMessage

Cloud Storage & Similar:

- BitTorrent Sync

Connectivity, Networks & VPNs:

- AIO Remote Server
- OpenVPN
- GUFW (Firewall)

Cryptography:

- Kleopatra
- Enigmail

Type this in your terminal: sudo apt-get install lubuntu-restricted-extras p7zip

Otherwise you can find restricted extras in the Software Center too, or you can install Lightspark, which is an alternative Flash Player in the Software Center as well.

Thanks for the tip master. I'm just writing the list after trying what I usually use on daily basis. But most of the softwares are not made for ARM arch, that's why ;)

It usually doesn't matter unless it's proprietary.
