Installing programs

Postby ziemowitt on Tue Apr 15, 2008 1:35 pm

Hi, Im totally new user of Mint Distribution and feel rookie and yardbird.

In Windows we use to click in an installing icon and all process is being started. But it doesnt work in Linux :):):)

Please, I would like some "good soul" to give me itinerary how to install programs. My problem is that I dont know what is relevant to Add/Remove programs or control panel in Windows.

Kindly regards

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You have to use the Synaptics package manager or the software portal.
For more information, i suggest you carefully read the Linux Mint user guide : http://linuxmint.com/pub/Daryna_User_Guide-4.1.pdf

Well the link is indeed dead.
I think it is due to heavy maintenance and changes on the mint servers these days...

However, here is a temporary link for you : http://files.mint-space.com/getfile,20080416171408,LinuxMint-4.0-User-Guide_v1.pdf.html
