Tweaking Ubuntu

I have been playing around with the new LTS version of Ubuntu 16.04 and in my efforts to tweak it to my comfort, did the following:

sudo apt-get install synaptic unity-tweak-tool chromium-browser mc gnome-themes-standard ubuntu-restricted-extras vlc audacious -y

If you're into themes, you may want to have a look at the following resources:

If you need programming/basic development tools:

sudo apt-get install build-essential default-jdk ruby python python3 geany geany-plugins vim -y
