    I like to use terminal and run sudo apt-get install , I recently started using apt-fast.

    copy paste this into the terminal:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:apt-fast/stable && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install apt-fast

    Load Terminal and then type:
    sudo apt-get install (name of app)

    Like others have said, you can either obtain the .deb package and use gdebi to install or you can use the command line and use sudo apt-get install program-name.

    Make sure that you have the proper ppa’s installed so you can install from the command line. And only install ppa’s from a trusted source.

    you can usually find instructions online that tells you how to install application via command line

    ctrl – alt – t (this opens a terminal session)
    sudo-apt get install (app you want to install)
    You’ll probably need the software center anyway to get the names of the app.

    you will have to do it via the terminal with the command sudo apt-get and program name but i dont know why you would wanna do it that way unless you are really into installing apps via the terminal…

    The easiest way to install apps on Ubuntu without using the software center is to download a .deb file from the app’s website (e.g. Google Chrome) and double click and follow the instructions to install.
