How to install any of the free software offered...

THE SIMPLE WAY:

The Software Manager allows you to install  “applications” by getting the right “packages” for you, not only from the repositories (packages databases)  but also from other places on the Internet. Also uninstalling an app is simple as pie.

  • From the main menu - Select "Software Manager" that will open a screen similar to the image below.
  • Search for the software apps that interests you - double click on the app icon then elect to "Install". You can uninstall it in the same way (if it is installed then the "Install" option will be changed to "Uninstall").
  • An alterative way is you can also go to Menu > Package Manager, type in an application name to search and install a software package from the repositories.
  • BUT WAIT - there's yet another way if you're gett'n into becoming a "keyboard ninja" you can use the "terminal" to do the same thing. We'll look at that in the "Using the Terminal.." tutorial.
  • Trying to figure out how to install software that's downloaded off the iNet is somewhat of a nightmare. There is no conformity and hard for a newbie to understand. However - unless you need a real specialized piece of software this is never a problem using the included "Software Repository".
