    Hiding software for sale in software center???

    I'm just wondering if there's a way of configuring the Software Center so that the software for purchase is not displayed?

    Thanks

    Remove software center and use synaptic package manager.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install synaptic

    OK thanks. I have Synaptic already. So I take it there's no way of keeping Software centre but just hiding $ software then?

    since it seems that you use Quantal Quetzal (at least this is what I see in your signature) you might follow these instructions that you can find on askubuntu.
    If you wish to hide software for sale by Ubuntu Software Center in Ubuntu 11.10 or older releases, then you might follow these other instructions that you can also find on askubuntu.
