    Install entire category software

    Is there any shortcut or command line method to install every package in a category in Software. For example all the education pkgs? It seems this would be easy in synaptic but when I type education in synaptic, they don't all appear- in 20.04 specifically.

    Just a thought, there are many good educational packages native to KDE. Do you have any preference for gnome over kde applications or do you just want everything?
