Some Programs I Tested On Ubuntu 13.04 Daily Build

Here is a list of programs that i tested on the Ubuntu 13.04 daily build. It’s a list of useful software to install but not the complete list of all the software i use on Ubuntu. I installed all the programs on the Ubuntu 13.04 daily build before making this post, the PPA’s are correct for 13.04 and all the programs work without any problems.

Programs tested: Medibuntu files and the Ubuntu restricted extras, Compizconfig Settings Manager and extra plugins, XScreensaver, BSOD screen saver, Ubuntu Tweak, Y PPA Manager, Gimp, the Faenza and Faience icons, VLC player, XBMC media center and Mixxx (Free DJ software).

When the final Ubuntu 13.04 is released i will make new installation guides with videos.
