I am a Linux newbie who is entrenched in the world of Microsoft and looking to broaden my technical expertise in Linux.
I am using Debian with KDE 3.5 as a desktop environment.
I am familiar with the apt-get command, especially in light of the fact that up till now I have been concentrating on the command line interface and server setup but have not worked much with KDE.
My question is this ...
What do I need to do to install an application in the KDE environment. In the world of Windows, there is inevitably a .EXE that installs an application. There is also an add/remove programs interface in the control panel.
What type of files invoke an application to install and is there a graphical utility to manage these applications ?
I downloaded what I thought were the install files for Firefox and created a directory called 'downloads' under my home directory, there were quite a few files that were downloaded to this location, but I can't figure out how to actually start or manage the installation.
Please help and thanks for everything in the recent past regarding answering my questions ...
