There have been a lot of posts floating around the web on packages to install after a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04, however I have not seen one about Kubuntu. This post will explain what packages I add :
1. Blogilio: For offline blog writing and how this post was created.
2. plasma-wallpapers-addons: Adds a bunch of cool things that you can do with the Desktop besides displaying an image, referred to as Types under Desktop Activity Settings. The Type i like to set is Weather, which changes the background based on your weather location. Pretty cool
3. Choqok: Microblogging client, allows you to connect to Twitter and Identi.ca. Great product and love it.
4. chromium-browser: Chromium web browser, a very fast and very powerful web browser created by Google. This is the open source version
