Installing software

Postby Arran on Sat Oct 01, 2011 10:19 am

LMDE with Pack 3

Hi

I use to use Synaptic to install software. But from time to time, I also read about installing software with other means, eg the console.

What are there for possibilities, their advantages and disadvantages?

Is there somewhere a good description or a Wiki for a Newbie?

Thanks for all help.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Have a look at the Mint User Guide
http://www.linuxmint.com/documentation.php
You may find what you need there

Thank you. How relevant is the difference between the Mint #9 to the Mint#11? I'd prefer the German version, but if the changes are too big, I'd go for the English one.

And I believe there are some large differences between Debian by Ubuntu and Debian by Debian?

For information about installing software the German language user guide for Mint 9 will be fine for Mint 11
