How can I manually install apps without Ubuntu Software Centre in Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit? Please help!
to manually installl apps on linux u need all the files of that app that is .deb files on ubuntu and all the dependencies for it . dependecies are like requirement to run a particular application like on windows
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.
Run in Terminal
sudo apt-get install ( apps YOU want to install)
You can use the terminal.
To search: sudo apt-cache search ""
A list of applications will show up.
To install: sudo apt-get install .
On terminal- sudo apt-get install
or u can download the packages from the ubuntu ftp servers(but be aware of proper dependencies) then install the packages using synaptec or other package manager
use terminal and type sudo apt-get install
or download the file of your app...
you have to find the .deb file of the app you want. you need gdebi to install the .deb file.
all you need is the name of the app you want. Open a terminal app and type
sudo apt-get install
step by step guidence.....
Works for me
