the required utilities for what? Basically, if you allready installed Ubuntu 12.10, what more do you need? Take a look at the software center for specific utils and software. –  Nanne Oct 27 '12 at 12:13

Usually, you dont need to install anything.

Drivers already come installed. (*)

Also,most common applications (like an office suite and a instant messenger) are already installed.

So, unless you have a particular issue, you are already set.

(*) Sometimes you'll want to install video drivers, to get better results when playing games. Just wait and see if you are happy with the way things are

btw, you need not install an antivirus or firewall either (at least to most common setups) –  josinalvo Oct 27 '12 at 14:09
