Top Things To Do After Installing Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin
I know, it's late. Usually I come up with this post as and when a new major Ubuntu release happens, which has proved helpful to hundreds of thousands of newbie Ubuntu users to get things rolling in an otherwise alien world. Because of reasons you all know by now, I was not able do it this time around, till now. And since it's already late, I have decided to elaborate the article even further by including every bit of information I could collect regarding the things you could do in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS after installing. So here is it.
First Things First - Installing Restricted Extras During Installation

- Notice the arrows pointing to the boxes in the screenshot above. If you tick both of them during the Ubuntu installation process (make sure you are connected to the internet before doing so), restricted extras package will be installed automatically and you will be able to play mp3's, avi's, mp4's etc. and watch flash videos (YouTube videos for example) right after Ubuntu installation is done with.
- But there is a catch. If you have a slow internet connection (which is very rare these days), ticking the boxes shown in the screenshot above will unnecessarily lengthen the installation process. I for one prefer to do all that after installing Ubuntu. If you are like me, the next two steps are for you.
