Ubuntu 14.04 LTS based Linux and Software

Applications for 14.04LTS Linux

Productivity Applications

  • LibreOffice 4.3 is now available for Ubuntu/Linux Mint via PPA
    The latest version of LibreOffice Productivity Suit is now available in it's own stable PPA. This continues to provide improved capability, including better compatibility with Microsoft Office and other productivity applications.
  • FFMultiConverter is now available for Ubuntu 14.04 & Linux Mint 17
    “FF Multi Converter is a simple graphical application which enables you to convert audio, video, image and document files between all popular formats, using and combining other programs. … The goal of FF Multi Converter is to gather all multimedia types in one application and provide conversions for them easily through a user-friendly interface.”

Internet Applications

  • Skype on LTS Linux is Broken … why I would use Google Hangouts instead of Skype w/ Linux
  • Tor Browser Bundle Ubuntu PPA … the easy but less trusted way to do this
    “Use this PPA at your own risk. One of the fundamental security measures of the Tor Browser Bundle is that it is distributed by a trusted source, the Tor Project, and for this purpose the project provides PGP signatures to allow verification of authenticity for the source and binary packages they offer for download. This security measure is disregarded when third parties distribute their own packaged versions of TBB, since there's no easy way to prove these packages haven't been modified from their officially distributed versions.”

System Applications

Linux Mint

Linux Lite 2.,0

Do NOT use the below work-around article! That ppa contains too many updated 14.04 packages– so using it could end up worse than the problem it supposedly fixes!
