Ubuntu Multimedia, MS Fonts etc in One Command!

I have always wanted a one-step way of getting a Ubuntu machine set up and ready to go. This doesn’t handle everything I need (e.g. Broadcom wireless and NVidia) but it is pretty close 🙂 .

The Ubuntu Restricted Extras will install Adobe Flash Player, Java Runtime Environment (JRE) (sun-java-jre) with Firefox plug-ins (icedtea), a set of Microsoft Fonts (msttcorefonts), multimedia codecs (w32codecs or w64codecs), mp3-compatible encoding (lame), FFMpeg, extra Gstreamer codecs, the package for DVD decoding (libdvdread3, but see below for info on libdvdcss2), and the unrar archiver. This is a single command approach.
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
