We all know that it is possible to upgrade Linux distributions. You can upgrade Ubuntu 9.10 to the latest 10.04 Lucid Lynx release, but a clean install is the best way to go if you want to avoid update headaches. Usually this means reinstalling your favorite applications and applying tweaks all over again. Now with Ubuntu 10.04 a script called Ubuntu 10.04 Start Script can help you to install software and tweak the system very easy.

Using this script, you can add popular repositories including Ubuntu restricted extras, Medibuntu, and Getdeb. With a few clicks, you can install a wide range of useful applications such as Dropbox, Google Earth, Google Chrome, VLC media player, Ubuntu Tweak and many others. The script also lets you install different codecs, Java runtime environment, Flash plugin as well as add support for various archive types and DVD playback. In addition to that, the script can apply an assortment of tweaks to the freshly installed system.

In the terminal, switch to the resulting directory and run the script as root using the following command:

[pensacola@pensacola-tech ~]# sudo ./ubuntu-10.04-script
