2 Simple Chromium Extensions For Ubuntu Users

We featured a post on 'Three Must have Firefox Add-ons for Ubuntu Users' some time back. I wanted to do a similar post for Chrome/Chromium but could not find many extensions specifically made for Ubuntu users. So I decided to share these two extensions available as of now.

Ubuntu Package Search



The extension allows you to search Ubuntu Packages from the browser itself. Features a simple popup menu with many fields. 

Search Field: Package names, Description, Source Names and Contents
Section: All, Main, Multiverse, Universe, Restricted
Suits: Dapper, Hardy, Jaunty, Karmic, Lucid, Maverick
Arch: i386, amd64 and powerpc

You can also save your favorite options so that you do not have select them every time.

Download from here

Apt-linker

This extension turns lines of text describing commands for installation into clickable apturl links that allow you to install the packages with just 2 clicks. Apturls are a way to install packages by using a protocol handler to read the list of packages to install.

In simple terms, it turns "apt-get install" lines into clickable apturl links.

You can download the extension from here

Install the extension and  test it on the following command:

sudo apt-get install banshee
