Additional applications after installing mini Ubuntu

I have installed Ubuntu using netinstall to have more control as to what gets installed in the system. I have selected Lubuntu minimal installation in Software Selection (tasksel). It is pretty clean I should say.

Here are some of the tools that I install to make it more useful for my needs:
  • Customize Look and Feel (lxappearance) - LXDE GTK+ theme switcher
  • Chromium Browser (chromium-browser) - open source version of Google's Chrome browser
  • Image Viewer (gpicview) - lightweight image viewer
  • Leafpad (leafpad) - a text editor, it is a GTK+ based simple editor
  • LXTerminal (lxterminal) - LXDE terminal emulator
  • Midnight Commander (mc) - a powerful file manager
