Try synaptic to install software instead.

It comes with Ubuntu if you have the default install. Type in the terminal:
Code:
sudo synaptic
then enter your password, it should bring synaptic up.
Then if you don't have it type in the terminal:
Code:
sudo apt-get install synaptic
Regards

Synaptic is a GUI front-end for apt-get and aptitude and is a standard part of Debian and Debian-based distros.

If it doesn't appear on the menu somewhere, you should be able to add it.

I have stopped using Ubuntu, but at least through 11.10 it was included in Ubuntu and should be available through the desktop.

By the way, the convention here at LQ is to spell out words and not to use "text-speak." It makes it easier for others to read your posts quickly and accurately.
