Documentation : Ubuntu : Meta-Packages
This section describes all the meta-packages available in the KXStudio-Team Ubuntu repositories, splitted by type.
The main meta-packages will simply install Audio, Graphic or Video applications.
The Audio meta-package is also split into plugin categories, for anyone that wants more plugins, but not actually more applications.
It's not like your KXStudio system will get slower with a bit more applications though...
The main meta-packages are:
'audio' recommends 'audio-plugins', and 'audio-plugins' depends on all it's sub-packages.
With the exception of KXStudio 12.04, 'graphics' recommends 'ubuntustudio-font-meta', which will install a nice collection of fonts.
On KXStudio 12.04, you have to install 'ubuntustudio-font-meta' manually if you want that font collection.
The extra meta-packages are:
- kxstudio-meta-codecs (12.04 only)
The 'codecs' package is self-explanatory, it will install a collection of codecs for gstreamer, sox and xine.
The 'non-free' will install some good but close-source software, like Renoise, energyXT, and Pianoteq.
These applications come as demos, see Documentation:Ubuntu:RegisterCommercial to activate them if you have a license.
The 'restricted-extras' is simply a combination of '[k|x]ubuntu-restricted-extras', and some other minor "restricted" stuff.
(In this case, "restricted" means that it can't be installed in Ubuntu by default, but you're safe to do it afterwards).
This package recommends 'kxstudio-meta-codecs'.
