Applications running on my Ubuntu

On my work, I'm using Ubuntu Jaunty (9.04) server edition. As you might already using it, you will know that server edition not equipped (yet) with X server and desktop manager like KDE or GNOME. The reason I choose server edition are it's lite, and I can add only applications that I use. Desktop edition already fill with many applications I don't even use, and it's so heavy for my 256mb RAM!

OK, here are lists of applications I'm using, starting from X server and DM:
execute this first:
# sudo apt-get update
# sudo apt-get upgrade

1. X server and xinit
# sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg xinit xorg

2. WindowManager (either xfce4 or fluxbox, equal lite for me)
# sudo apt-get install xfce4
From this step, you can execute 'startx' to login to your Desktop Manager.

note: this step is optional, you can install any desktop manager you want: Gnome, KDE or anything.. as long as your computer is powerful enough :)

3. Mozilla Thunderbird - email client
# sudo apt-get install mozilla-thunderbird

4. Mozilla Firefox - internet browser
I make a writing about installing firefox here

5. OpenOffice - office suite
# sudo apt-get install

6. Network utility
# sudo apt-get install ssh nmap traceroute tcptraceroute dnsutils

7. CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System)
# sudo aptitude install cupsys

8. Samba - file sharing
# sudo aptitude install samba smbfs smbclient

9. Nautilus - file manager
# sudo apt-get install nautilus

10. File compression tools
# sudo apt-get install rar unrar zip unzip ark

With this 10 applications, I can do everyday office works. How about you? Please share your everyday usage applications on comments :)
