The subject says it all: how can I search a Unity lens using the command line? This would be useful, e.g., when ssh-ing into a machine.
For example, if I know I can get to the software center by searching for 'software' in the application lens but I don't know the command line for the software center it would be useful to be able to run the lens search via the command line and get results.
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.
The debain package "cav-linux_1.1.268025-1_i386.deb" can be downlowded from the Comodo anti-virus website http://antivirus.comodo.com/ . The package can be opened with Ubuntu software center but can not be searched for using it. It also can not be uninstalled using the Ubuntu software center.
Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot comes with a better software management. For example, Ubuntu team has just updated the Ubuntu Software Center interface. To me, this new version of Ubuntu Software Center is easier to use and nicer compared to previous version. The search box is well placed at the top right of the main window. [...]
For Applications management, Linux Mint 13 has Software Manager by default. Synaptic Package Manager is also there, but most beginners prefer Software Manager (over the synaptic or command line utility).
In Ubuntu, beginners prefer - Ubuntu Software Center, it’s easy to use and it has a lot of exciting features.
I usually use apt-cache search to find packages, but every once in a while (usually after a fresh install, during which one of the panels displayed while you're waiting for the installation to complete advises that you use Update Software Center to find and install new software) I try using the GUI provided by the Ubuntu Software Center.
