When it is done loading its items, you will see a major list of programs you can install or that are currently installed. Go to the top and click "search". A little box should appear, and you can now type the name of the program you wish to install. After finding this, you will be able to click the white box next to it and click "mark for installation". After doing so, go to the top of the package manager and you should see a button that says "apply". Click this and then it will guide you through the installation.
