As it is, what gnome applications are missing in ubuntu 12.04? (edit: What programs are in the gnome package of ubuntu - which is not installed automatically?)

And will there be any advantage of installing them?

Can you edit your question to be more specific? I am assuming you are asking what software comes as standard with 12.04 compared to another distro you are familiar with – stephenmyall Apr 27 '12 at 11:50
@StephenMyall I edited my question. – user27515 Apr 27 '12 at 12:10
@user27515 - your question is unclear - missing from what? compared to what? what desktop-environment are you referring to? if you install the gnome-package - it will install whatever the dependencies are. What extra information are you looking for? – fossfreedom Apr 27 '12 at 12:21

There are no "gnome packages" missing. I am still unclear what you are asking. If you are planning to upgrade to 12.04 a list of the software that is in installed as part of the distrubution is listed here and on many other sites including .

But like all Ubuntu distributions you have the Software centre where to can browse and download what packages you need
