There is a new revision of this tutorial available for Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal).

The Perfect Desktop - Ubuntu Studio 10.04 - Page 5

10 Opera

Open a browser and go to http://www.opera.com/browser/download/; select Ubuntu as the distribution and click the Download Opera button:

A download dialogue should come up. Select Open with GDebi Package Installer (default):

A Package Installer window comes up. Click the Install Package button to install Opera:

Type in your password:

Opera is now being installed. Afterwards, you can close the Package Installer window:

 

11 Skype

Go to http://www.skype.com/download/skype/linux/choose/ and select the right Ubuntu .deb package for your architecture (Ubuntu 8.10+ 32-bit or Ubuntu 8.10+ 64-bit):

A download dialogue will come up. Click Save File to download the package to your hard drive:

Select the folder to save the file to - the default location is your home folder (~):

After the download has finished, open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and go to the directory where the package has been saved (the default location is your home directory, i.e. ~):

cd ~

The package can then be installed as follows:

sudo gdebi skype-ubuntu*

Afterwards, you can delete the .deb package:

rm -f skype-ubuntu*

 

12 Google Picasa

A download dialogue will come up. Click Save File to download the package to your hard drive:

Select the folder to save the file to - the default location is your home folder (~):

After the download has finished, open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and go to the directory where the package has been saved (the default location is your home directory, i.e. ~):

The package can then be installed as follows:

sudo gdebi picasa_3.0-current_*

Afterwards, you can delete the .deb package:

rm -f picasa_3.0-current_*

Unfortunately, the Picasa launcher isn't activated automatically, therefore we have to do this. Right-click the menu icon and select Edit Menus:

In the Menu Editor, go to Applications > Graphics in the left window, and then check the Picasa checkbox in the main window. Click Close afterwards:
