Just something I started recently. Although this is the Mint board, there's a good chance this program will be handy with a Mint setup and other setups based on Ubuntu; I've not yet tested it, however, so I couldn't say for sure. I thought it might be something y'all would want to try out.
Let me know if you have any ideas for packages (or files linked thereto) which you feel should be up to the user whether they have or not, even if it's Mint-specific. At a later date, I will likely focus on support for Mint (if people want it), despite it not quite matching up with the Mint paradigm (most things being there, just in-case), but hey this is Linux; the land of choice!
At the moment, just so it's clear, this is a work in progress I've not yet had the chance to fully test, so please keep that in mind.
This now works swimmingly and has been greatly updated! Here's a quick couple of lines to run one-after-the-other to download and install simplify-ubuntu, plus
insit(software manager for many programs I've written and put on GitHub):
Code: Select all
sudo wget -q https://raw.githubusercontent.com/terminalforlife/installit/master/insit -O /usr/bin/insit && sudo chmod 755 /usr/bin/insit sudo insit -S simplify-ubuntu # The -S just updates insit as well, which now supports bash completion, along with simplify-ubuntu.
sudo insit -U simplify-ubuntu, or check out the latest (probably unstable) changes by installing straight from the dev branch:
sudo insit -B dev -U simplify-ubuntu
