    Use Ubuntu Software Center in Lubuntu?

    Hello,

    I'm using Ubuntu in dual-boot in my laptop and recently i've installed Lubuntu on my notebook.

    In Ubuntu i'm used to work with Ubuntu software center to install and remove software, and in Lubuntu only Synaptics is available. So is it possible and a good choice to use Ubuntu Software Center in Lubuntu? If yes, how should i install it?

    Thanks!

    Download the Ubuntu Software Center from the Synaptic Package Manager and install it. I just did it a couple of hours ago. Works fine.

    EDIT: Rex Bouwense beat me to it.


    You can install it via Synaptic.

    If you like it, keep it, if not then you can remove it.

    As already posted, YES you can install Software Center in Lubuntu (it's not included by default).

    IMHO, it's better to learn how to use the Terminal (LXTerminal in Lubuntu) because it's much faster and if that was too complicated then Synaptic is a great choice too.
    After all, Synaptic or Software Center are just Graphical Front End and one can do the same with Terminal.

    I sometimes use Synaptic when I can't remember the right commands or don't even know them.

    Enjoy using Lubuntu, it simply rocks
