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.
I am using Ubuntu 13.10 on my NEC-Powermate vl280 along with win 7. My problem is that when I try to install something (say vlc) with software center it gets stuck and I have to force close it. This is the first time I tried to install something using Software Center. I am new to Ubuntu.
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!
I am a beginner trying to understand how installation of software works in ubuntu.
I have installed a lot of softwares on my system but everytime I want to install something I will just google and follow without really unerstaing how it works.The different ways I have done installation
sudo apt-get install
Dowload .deb and use dpkg
Install from Ubuntu software center
I have ubuntu 12.04.03. But I can't seem to install software from the ubunut software centre. Whenever I click install it shows the progress bar progressing but when I check the "dash home" it doesnt show up. I have to install it manually from the terminal. Is there a fix to this?
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.
