Are you ready to install a ton of great software into your fresh Linux Mint with 1 simple command?
My aim in this post is to answer the question: “what software to install on linux Mint?” whether you’re a beginner, expert or somewhere in between.
Linux Mint is a very popular linux distribution and for good reason.. it’s simply a great system!
If you’re like me and you find yourself installing linux more often than not these days, whether it be for friends, family members or just on your own PC’s and laptops at home then you’ll eventually get to the point where you’re finally presented with a fresh linux desktop and now all you need to do is install some software!
And when I say ‘some software’.. What I REALLY mean is THOUSANDS of tools which most certainly will be multiple Gigabytes in size once installed.
My Linux Mint Personal Collection
I’ve been running the linux Mint system for many years now and during that time I’ve come to discover some excellent open source tools in the Mint repository and so, here I’ve created a list of these tools just for YOU!
I’ve also supplied a short shell script which will install every tool in the list.
Although this is aimed at Linux Mint, this will work for many Debian based linux systems such as Ubuntu with the exception of one or two Mint specific tools.
Please note that some of the tools in the list may not install as I may have installed these from a third party and they may not be available in the repository.
While downloading and installing every tool in this list, it usually takes me many hours to complete.
But if you have a fast internet connection then yours would probably go much quicker than mine.
What Software Is Included?
Obviously there are way too many tools to mention here. But here’s a quick run down of what kind of software to expect:
- Game Emulators
- Sound/Video Editing
- Kodi & Other Multimedia Players
- Web Browsers
- Libre Office & Other Office Software
How To Download & Install My Collection
Once you have a copy of my personal collection I’m hoping you will no longer be looking for what software to install on linux Mint any longer.
