UbuTricks is a Zenity-based, graphical script with a simple interface. Although early in development, its aim is to create a simple, graphical way of installing updated applications in Ubuntu 14.04 and future releases.
Apps will be downloaded and installed automatically. Some will require a PPA to be added to the repositories. Others will be compiled from source if no PPA is available. The compilation process can take a long time, while installing from a PPA or DEB file should be quick, depending on your download speed.
The install methods are as follows:
PPA – the program will be downloaded and installed from a PPA
DEB – the program will be installed from a DEB package
Source – the program will be compiled (may take a long time)
Script – the program will be installed using a script provided by the developer
Archive – the program will be installed from a compressed archive
Repository – the program will be installed from a repository (not PPA)
List of applications you can install
The latest versions of the following applications can be installed via UbuTricks:
Battle for Wesnoth (Dev)
VCMI (Heroes III Engine)
