    The following are the available options for package installs. Please note that each
    main application will also get all required codecs and libs added automatically,
    so there's no need to manually install the specific codecs unless you want to.

    You can return to this main menu to pick from another group to install
    more packages, then to exit, just hit the quit number and the script will exit.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    1 - audio-video-players mplayer, kaffeine, amarok, realplayer
    2 - browsers-internet (coming soon) will have at least opera, swiftfox, chrome
