I was trying to install get several programs. I realized that a lot of the installations came in the form of
deb files. I have no idea how to install
tar files so I searched and found that you can covert them into
deb files and install them using the Ubuntu Software Center.
So I did that, but when the
deb file finished installing I looked for the program in the dash and could not find it. When I looked at the install section in the Ubuntu Software Center it was not there either. I just want to see if anyone can give me steps on how to install both
tar files since I’m new to Ubuntu and only used to the install processes in Windows. I really like this OS and would like to learn.
By the way, would some programming knowledge be needed to use this OS to its full potential? If so, what can I do to learn?
