Plethora of Ubuntu games and softwares

If you’re tired of the default Ubuntu packages/softwares/games etc. (well they’re pretty extensive though, it should probably take you months to try out each and every software in the repos), here’s a really cool way to install external apps without worring about tar.gz or extracting files etc.

For Ubuntu apps:

Its called GetDeb. It has loads of really good and useful softwares, and the best part is its just a one click install. But before you can download these, you need to install a small package (dont worry, it is small, just a few hundred KBs). The instructions for installation is here. The rest is self explanatory. Browse through the extensive list of softwares here and just click on ‘Install’ for the program you like. And bingo, it will be installed. No fuss, nothing.

For Ubuntu games:

The site is called PlayDeb, its a sister site of GetDeb but this one’s dedicated to games. So before you start installing go through the installation instructions (basically install a package, this one’s again in KBs) here. Then just browse through the huge list of games here and click on ‘Install’ for the game you like.
