One thing I hate about Windows is when I install software, a whole bunch of other software that I didn't ask for tries to sneek in and install itself. Of course, I can prevent this but it's stupid. I installed GIMP on my Windows partition and the install wizard asked me to install 3 or 4 more pieces of software.
I've tried wine software to install .exe files in my ubuntu 12.10 os but many times it is not able to install the software appropriately or if installed then the windows software file does not works properly. So can anyone suggest me some other software in ubuntu which will helps me to install and run windows software in my ubuntu 12.10. Thanks in advance
I just started migrating from Windows to Ubuntu 10.04
I have big question regarding installing new softwares.
I want to install a software "ABC12" which is on the web (Let us assume it is Ubuntu version).
What are the ways to install - I am very confused.
Recently I install ubuntu software on my other computer… well the problem has been when I have try to install some software on the ubuntu computer, the software come up on the screen and suddenly shutdown the PC. I am not very good for use ubuntu. Any help I would be very grateful!
Is it possible to select package groups, individual packages, or a combination of the two during an install? Fedora has those options of customizing software selection in a simple GUI which I find easy to follow.
I download a trial version of Crossover and started to install it using Ubuntu Software Center. As the install was about to finish it stopped and would not complete. I switched of and restated the Software Center but it is still trying to carry on installing.
Ubuntu software repository is one of the bigger, and this means that you can easily install a lot of software with the Ubuntu Software Center or from the command line with a simple sudo apt-get install softwarename, but sometimes you want a software that is not present or perhaps a newer release of the one available in the main repository, in this cases you can use a PPA.
I'm appropriately embarrassed to ask this. I have software that I bought 8 years ago and at one point ran on Red Hat linux. I haven't used Linux since then and have forgotten pretty much everything. I have recently intalled Ubuntu 12.04 (32 bit) as an operating system and would like to use this software, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to install it. The Software is on a CD.
