Still trying to get Sigil


Still can't get Sigil. Haven't gotten a reply from the last two posts I made. Anybody got a way of getting it? Thanks. P.S. I'm looking for Sigil 0.7.2.

Found the file in the File Manager and right clicked on it. The options for opening were:


-open in ubuntu software center
-open with Archive Manager
-open with other application
sudo apt-get install gdebi

EDDY, I ran this command. It ran. Here's the result (see screenshot). I assume the command was to get Sigil, but if I have Sigil, I can't find it. I've looked in Downloads, the applications menu, synaptic package manager, Ubuntu Software Center, run "find" and "locate" in the terminal. Is it somewhere else or do I not have it? And please remember I'm totally new at this--if you could flesh things out a bit, it would be appreciated. And if this last command did not install Sigil, can you tell me how to remove what was installed. Thanks.

You installed gdebi, right-click on the file you want to install, select open with gdebi & it will install for you as long as it's a .deb

I got it, EDDY. Really appreciate you following through on this, and now I'll be able to install other deb files too. Thanks so very much!
