(Solved) Installing Ubuntu Software Center problems

Postby MrGoodguy on Tue Feb 12, 2013 11:08 pm

Hi,
I want to install the Ubuntu Software Center and have tried, with no luck. Do not any GUI installer software so need to do this manually.

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
software-center is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

This is the result, yet when I go to the Menu and search for it. Its not there?

Try to launch the program manually. Type this command:

Code: Select all
software-center

Anyway, I prefer to use Menu -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager
