Newbie qestion- Adding new programs

Post by fkoehler »

OK, newbie question of the day.
I'm running the LXDE profile, v25.

I don't see any of the usual GUI package managers, and Apt-get update seems to work however once that is done I am at a loss.

Maybe I'm having a brain fart, but isn't there a way to add a simple graphical package manager?
Or am I missing something basic here?

Well, pretty basic.

apt-get update

apt-get install aptitude

or even better:

apt-get update && sudo apt-get install pistore

It sounds like your referring to Synaptic package manager, which is a GUI package manager for Linux.

You can install synaptic package manager by using the following commands:

Code: Select all

apt-get update 
apt-get install synaptic
It should then appear in one of the submenus of the LXDE start menu.
