    how to install logisim

    Hi,
    I can't install logisim 2.7.1, which I need to use for a computer architecture class I am taking. I looked in the software center and tried the apt-get thing but might not have used it correctly. I am new to ubuntu but I did install updates and a c++ compiler through apt-get. I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on a laptop that was installed using a windows installer. Can someone tell me step by step how to install this program called Logisim?

    Thanks
    David

    In 12.04 logisim is in the backports and not in the main repositories. What you need to do is open the Software Centre, select Edit -> Software Sources from the menu and then when the window opens, click on the Updates tab and enable the Unsupported Updates (precise-backports) option; press Close and then search for it and install it.

    Logisim can be installed through software center/apt-get if you have backports enabled - Can you see it in the menu right now?

    Does it show up if you run
    Code:
    /usr/bin/logisim
    in the terminal?

    Thanks.

    I have enabled the backports, but I still can't find it.

    Ok I finally got it. I did sudo apt-get upgrade and then opened the software center again and found logisim. It installed and works. Thank you both for helping.
