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 <--> ".
I installed Ubuntu Gnome 13.10 and then upgraded the Gnome version to 3.10. But, all new apps in 3.10 such as Gnome Software Center, Maps, Weather etc are not included. So now, I wonder how to get and install these apps, especially Gnome Software Center?
