Ubuntu Center is a PHP control center for your Ubuntu box. You can stream music from your computer, view your photos, bookmarks, calendar, and much more. It is packed full of amazing features that are elsewhere, but never together in harmony. Ubuntu Center takes care of this incorporating many capabilities into a simple web interface.

managed to install Ubuntu Center on my Ubuntu box that was the test subject for The Ultimate Ubuntu/TorrentFlux Box featured a couple of weeks ago. I installed with the debian file. It was a bit tricky getting everything to work. It wanted to install php5-gd and libgd2 which I already had installed. I just kept uninstalling and reinstalling with apt and eventually it worked.

Once I had Ubuntu Center installed, I head over to http://localhost/center and completed the web installer.
