This scripts installs tons of fonts, DVD and multimedia codecs to your system. I ran this on the T41 and it was fabulous.
Here’s a quote from from the maker, Robbie Ferguson:
When Hardy was released, Automatix closed it’s support for Ubuntu. This left a large gap in the “quick and easy” market for multimedia codec installation. perfecthardy is a Linux script built specifically for Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04, and it makes the installation of all your multimedia, DVD, fonts, etc. so very easy.
