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) ?

open software centre and install the things you want. Or open a ternimal and type: sudo apt-get install [the thing you want] – Green Black Feb 22 '13 at 19:18

You could use Ubuntu Software Center for installing apps. Some basic apps are Libre Office,Document Viewer, Empathy, Thunderbird,Firefox etc

The software updater will get your system where it is supposed to be. Or use command line to sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade to get current.

Ubuntu should have vim-tiny installed by default. I only use vi. You are typing vi to run it, yes? I just typed vim in the CLI and the response suggested I install it. The fix for that is to make a soft link to vim from vi: sudo ln -s /usr/bin/vi /usr/bin/vim
