How do I install software for all users (in this case Ubuntu 9.10)?


Installing from software Software Center gives you 0 options and installs in the current user's home directory. Any idea how I can install the app for all users without logging in and install from there?

How do you know that Ubuntu's Software Center installs stuff in the user's home directory?

Must be 'NetBeans' specific or a bug. It always needs to use sudo to install. I installed the package manager in Kubuntu-10.04 and installed apvlv ... it is in /usr/bin
