LXer: How to Install Third Party Software in Ubuntu Software Center

Published at LXer:

After written thousands of Linux articles, one of the complaints that I always heard about Linux is that you have to use the command line to install applications. Most people donít like Windows, but they were afraid to move to Linux because of the command line. In Windows, they can install an application by double clicking the exe file, but in Linux, they have to use the command line. So is it true that the command line is the only way to install applications in Linux?
