Minimal Desktop Script Generator

Written for Ubuntu minimal desktop by Anthony Veilleux on 2010-09-27

I am happy to announce that version 1.0 of the Minimal Desktop for Ubuntu Script Generator (see title) is now officially online. It is marked for MDU version 10.10, which is currently in beta, but it also works well for 10.04.2. The generator is an implementation of an idea that Stacy R. had back in June, and it is hopefully an easy way to get an MDU installation off the ground more quickly.

Ubuntu Minimal Desktop LiveCDs

Written for Ubuntu minimal desktop by Anthony Veilleux on 2010-06-04

Upon suggestion from one of my friends, I have created two Ubuntu Minimal Desktop LiveCDs -- one 64-bit and one 32-bit. They have the following software installed (on top of the base system):

-Epiphany Browser
-Pidgin IM
-OpenOffice.org suite
-Thunderbird
-VLC Media Player

If you would like to see a variation (one of the other setups), message me on LaunchPad and I'll build it.

((EDIT: The download links are obsolete, and have been removed.))
