Before I found Linux Mint, I made a console based utility to install "most requested applications" on Ubuntu. Now that I found Linux Mint, I decided to port this utility to Linux Mint. My original script was for Dapper, this new one is for Edgy (Bea). However, I am trying to learn how to make a GUI based utility using Zenity. This version which I am posting here is my first test version that has left my computer. I want anyone brave enough to test it and give me feedback, suggestions, corrections, advice, error reports, etc.
This version is VERY limited on what it can install. I did this on purpose so it will be easier for me and the testers to make sure I got this thing right before I go adding a lot of other programs and such to the list. Thank you for testing this.

Just extract the tar.gz file, open a terminal in the new folder and:
chmod u+x install.sh
sudo sh ./install.sh
and be sure to post any errors and such.
