Talking Installing New Programs on Fedora/Ubuntu

Hi,
Fedora has its own installing program. To install new programs go to "applications/addremove software" and you will get a window called "Package Manager".

You can search this package manager for any new software you would like to add.

Ubuntu also has a similar idea found at "Applications/addremove applications". Here you will get a window showing you many applications you can install on Ubuntu.

Hope this helps.

They each have their own package managers. Fedora/Red Hat has Yum and Ubuntu/Debian has Apt.

For example, if you would like to install Inkscape (popular vector image program) on a Fedora/Red Hat system, you'd type in (as root): yum install inkscape and for a Debian/Ubuntu system, you'd type in: apt-get install inkscape.

You just need to know the package that you would like to install. You can also install packages by compiling them from source, but that is a whole 'nother ball of wax.

Regards,

Brandon

I'm not familiar with Banshee. However, you could try
Code:
sudo apt-get install banshee
It's possible this may be available in the standard repositories. If it isn't, you'll have to add enable other repositories.

You may have to make this another post all it's own as I don't suggest hijacking another persons thread. Try googling your problem and see if you find any fixes. If not, post your problem.
