Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Apt-linker is a Chrome extensions which turns "apt-get install" text from websites into apt:// links, meaning you'll be able to click any "apt-get install" line to install applications instead of having to copy/paste the lines into a terminal.

The extension has a side effect for bloggers: if you try to edit a post which has some "apt-get install" text, it will show up as blank. Other than that, the extension works great and if you follow tutorials from forums / blogs constantly, you'll find it a real time-saver.

Apt-linker works in Google Chrome / Chromium on any Debian based Linux distribution (Ubuntu and so on).
