Installing Software in Linux

This is a three-part series I did for my LUG on installing software on your Linux system. The presentations start at the easiest level, with using Repositories and software like Synaptic and Package Kit, through using RPMs and DEBs, and finally looking at command-line installing and compiling. This is another series meant for newcomers to Linux.

  1. Part 1: Repositories
  2. Part 2: Package Managers
