Hi I am a fedora 17 newbie and a complete fan now. In fact, I totally got rid of Windows in my ASUS k42dy laptop. I noticed that fedora has it's own software center (just like ubuntu) and Yum Extender (I believe it's like Ubuntu's synaptic package manager). I am trying to install some games/apps let's say Open Arena, Frozen Bubble and etc.
Here's how you can install App Grid, an alternative to the Ubuntu Software Center, in Ubuntu 13.04. You can filter apps by name and rating, categories, as well as installed or pending installation. Sign in with your Ubuntu One account to buy apps or post reviews.
In Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, you can explore new upcoming apps or undiscovered cool apps – easily using Ubuntu Software Center. Now, some proprietary cool games are also available, besides the huge collection of free softwares.
Last time I tried downloading and installing updates to Ubuntu on my computer, the update failed randomly. I restarted the computer and tried running the updates again, and same error happened. I didn't have enough time to deal with it at the moment so I ignored it.
I am absolutely new to Ubuntu. I just migrated to Ubuntu13.10 from Windows. While using windows, it is a common practice to download a software, save the downloaded files in a different partition and then use the executable .exe installer to install the software in the computer. I have been installing apps in Ubuntu using " $ sudo apt-get install <--> ".
Migrating a handful of machines to Ubuntu from Windows XP and aiming for having this done before Tuesday. Using 14.04 Beta 2 images and things work great, but I am strugling a bit finding some of the apps in Ubuntu Software Center that I have installed on 13.10 on other machines e.g. Skype. This also goes for Spotify after adding the PPA.
