    Post Re: Installing software

    There are several ways of doing things.

    1. Run:
    Code:
    software-center
    in a terminal, try to install a package, and post what comes up in the terminal here so we can see what's wrong.

    2. Try synaptic, or APT. Synaptic is user-friendly, whereas apt- uses the following syntax:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install <package> <anotherpackageifyouneed>

    Re: Installing software

    When I go to down load I get a message box to choose application but there is none to choose from.
    All I want is to install adobe flash. It seems so difficult.
