This question already has an answer here:

I have just installed ubuntu 12.10 (without internet at the time of installation), and even some basic applications like vim are not installed in it.
What should I do so that these applications (which I guess, would have been installed if I were to install with internet) ?

Try looking in Ubuntu's Software Center those applications... If you want, you can also use Terminal and type

sudo apt-get install <package_name>

for basic application use ubuntu software center, it will also show the more usefull softwares, application and easy installation.

install vim using:-

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install vim

  • I know how to install a software using apt-get, but I guess vim comes pre installed in ubuntu, isn't it ? – Happy Mittal Feb 22 '13 at 19:09
