Scripting Assistance - Automated installation scrip


I am trying to create a script that will:
1) Install the a list of repositories
2) Update the repository listing on my computer
3) Install a few applications

What I have so far will do this, but what I would also like the script to do is run everything automatically. I am using Ubuntu and would like it if after ever repository I didn't have to hit enter and at every installation I didn't have to hit 'y' and they enter. Is there anyway to automate this?

Thank you, Jeff

Probably. Post what you've written and tried so far, and we'll be glad to help. Check out the "expect" command, which will wait for ("expect") certain things to come across, and answer accordingly. Lots of examples about how to use expect in scripts.

Ok...so you've got a list of apt-get commands. Put them in a file, with "#!/bin/bash" at the top. Enjoy your script.

If you want it to not prompt for a password, just modify the sudoers file to let your account use the apt-get command without requiring a password.

Hi

The sudo's will only ask for password once. Pass -y to all the apt-get and add-apt-repository so you don't need to answer yes to all those "do you really want to..." questions.

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:rockclimb/netbeans
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:stebbins/handbrake-snapshots
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:wfg/0ad
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:mozillateam/ppa
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppapenjdk/ppa
sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:aims/sagemath
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:kubuntu-ppa/beta
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:n-muench/vl
sudo apt-get -y update
sudo apt-get -y install sagemath-upstream-binary
sudo apt-get -y install 0ad
sudo apt-get -y install handbrake-gtk
sudo apt-get -y install cantor
sudo apt-get -y install ubuntu-restricted-extras
sudo apt-get -y install vlc vlc-plugin-pulse mozilla-plugin-vlc
sudo apt-get -y install gnumeric
sudo apt-get -y install netbeans
sudo apt-get -y install gimp
