the normal way is to start Ubuntu software center or Synaptic package manager, pick the program you want, and it gets installed.

That sounds a bit confused. I don't understand what you mean; could you be more specific, go more into details?

Your post is too vague. You don't indicate which of the methods available to you on Ubuntu you tried to use or what specific software you tried to install. Without that info, everything is just guessing, guessing you are trying to install windows software??

Please take a look at my sig, ignoring the editorial comments, and note the aspects of my box specs that are listed.

These are common answers to questions asked in responce to questions. At this point they may make little sense to you but they are critical in finding solutions to many probelems.

You would understand them much better if you had ever installed, say, Windows.

Like others responding here, I have little understanding of your "auto run" comment. There are fairly easy ways of setting up programs to run when you boot up but if looking for a gui (Grapic User Interface) solution an exact version number of the Ubuntu release you are running and the version of the Desktop Environment would also be very helpful (we will assume that it is Ubuntu with Unity as long as you refer to Ubuntu as opposed to Kubuntu, Xubuntu and so forth but explicite statements of DE are best).

Remember tha Linux is not monlithic and many or the folks that may answer may not be using Ubuntu or the DE you are using under Ubuntu and would really like to help but do need to know exactly what you are running. And what you are running it on.

Confusing at first. Linux is actually FUN. Gives you control of your system. You have to learn to do that though. Linux is not Windows. Linux is decended from Unix. Unix has been around since before people like MR Gates were fooling around stealing DOS code.
