Post I can't install csh on my ubuntu system


Hy I am a novice in Linux I have only had Ubuntu for a couple of weeks now, and I was unable to install a C shell on it. It only has a Bourne shell(bash) and I couldn't install the csh. I downloaded the software from the net but I was unable to find a way of instaling it. If someone can give me precise instructions on how to accomplish it's instalation I would be most gratefull or if there's a certain site from which to download a different version of the C shell.
Thanks

Try this:

sudo apt-get install csh

This command will use Ubuntu's package management system to download/install csh from Ubuntu's standard software repositories.

BTW, bash is NOT the Bourne shell. The Bourne shell is simply "sh". "bash" is more or less Bourne shell compatable, but with extensions.

Similarly, I think there's a "tcsh" shell which is an enhanced version of "csh". I haven't used it.

Now, I haven't used "csh" in over a decade and have never used it at all in Linux. Bash has all the power I'd ever need; I figured it was easier to just learn bash than to go through the trouble of installing csh.

Post I can't install csh on my ubuntu system(R)

thannks, but there is another problem i don't have direct acces to the internet from linux i only have a dial-ulp conection at home and i am not yet aware of how to set it up on linux yet if that is even possible so what i get from the inteernet i get in windows and then move it to linux.
So I kind of need the entire package... or instructions to install it

You could manually download the .deb packages from Ubuntu's software repositories directly, and install each package with:

sudo dpkg -i packagename.deb

Probably it will complain that it needs to install some other files to work. Which you'll have to install, and then try and get apt-get to resolve using:

sudo apt-get install -f

This is going to be a really painful process, possibly, but better than the alternatives.
