PulseAudio Equalizer provides a 15 band equalizer interface for the LADSPA sound processing functionality of PulseAudio. It supports enabling or disabling equalized audio on-the-fly, comes with some built-in presets (based on VLC's built-in equalizer), supports saving your own custom presets for later use, can be used for the current session only or permanently, etc.
To enable the system-wide equalizer for the current session, check the "EQ Enabled" box and click "Apply Settings". If you enable "Keep Settings", PulseAudio remains permanently equalized (and therefore, you won't need to run the PulseAudio Equalizer interface each time you login).
To install "PulseAudio Equalizer ", open a console terminal prompt, type in each line one by one or copy & paste each line below:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-equalizer
Make sure that you update all of your repositories and your system before you add anything. What you add is up to you, but I generally stick with gtk based apps if I'm using Gnome or another gtk based desktop, and I use qt based apps if I'm using KDE or another qt based desktop. You can mix and match if you really want to, but you add a lot of extra crap to your system when you do that. FWIW, I don't use Gnome much and I pretty much stick with qt based stuff, but that's just my personal preference.
Conky is a pain in the ass to configure manually if your system doesn't come with a configuration utility. I think it's pretty useless myself, but some people like it.
Grub Customizer is a new graphical GRUB2 settings manager which we've told you about last week.
Immediately after we published the Grub Customizer article, a new version was released which added BURG support so if you've read that article as soon as we've posted it, you might have missed this feature.

I'm a minamalist, so I seldom add any apps, although most of the operating systems I've tried have had to have a camera/photo app added to facilitate transfer of photos. I'm also experimenting with different apps for A/V capture in an effort to back up YouTube vids by placing them in other similar sites, such as Vidme.

Grub2 is an answer to a question that no one asked. The original version of grub was quite straightforward and easy to configure manually. Grub2 is fine when the autoconfiguration works, but it is a pain in the ass to configure manually when the automagic thing doesn't work properly.
