This is how easy if you’re new to Linux, this is how easy it is to get applications now. This viewer was just mentioning a program called Namdu. And so all I had to do is go into synaptic package manager which is under my system and administration menu. And that’s included with Ubuntu . That allows you to do a search so I just type in Namdu and of course it came up.
So now, all I need to do is allow that to download and it’s downloading the application packages everything that’s needed to run that program and it’s going to automatically install it for me on my computer system. So, no having to find programs, find the executables and install them properly or compile them or anything like that. So the other nice thing about using that, using synaptic package manager or app get or any other package manager within Linux and there are some other one for different distributions as well.
Other nice thing about that is if you’re used to getting like updates to your computer usually those updates are for core components and things like that. Imagine if the updates for your computer were for every application that was installed on your computer so let’s say for example Namdu, I'm just installing. And two months from now they bring out a brand new version of it and it’s nice and shiny, it’s got a whole new interface and it’s great and everybody wants it. I don’t have to go back and then reinstall because I'm going to get a little notify icon up in my panel that tells me there's a brand new version of Namdu. So, click okay and it installs it for me. And again, it just that simple and this is already done installing. So, let's take a look.
We’ll find this in applications accessories and then hit our window button on our keyboard which is our super button and space. Some on Namdu, there we go. Okay, so we need to just type to start searching so let’s say card game. It didn’t give it to me. But maybe there's an application solitaire, there Freecell solitaire automatically did it for me and then I can run it just by that. So, if the program, so let’s say K3B. Boom! I just type K3 and it already brought it up. So, just makes it a little easier for people who don’t want to use a menu as much. And yeah, kind of cool. Certainly very cool if you’ve got a lot of applications installed in your computer, it makes a little faster to find things.
