    Ubuntu Software Center

    Hi,

    Ubuntu requires elevated privileges to install some software. In the pop-up where the root password is asked, if you click on details, you see "Action" and "Vendor". What's the purpose of Action? Nothing happens when I click on "Install or remove packages"

    Thanks

    The action option in details, shows the command that will be used for the action ho have started. See the screenshot. To install a package it will use apt-get install, and to remove a package, it will use use apt-get remove.

    Thanks for the screenshot, I don't see org.debian.apt.install, but only "Install or remove packages".

    I'm running Raring (13.04), so there may be a bit of difference in versions, I don't use the Software Centre, so I normally don't see any changes that are made to newer versions. I'm still a happy synaptic user.
