Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

If I search for Software using Software Center how can I find which repository the software comes from? I tried desperately to find some information on the internet.

I thought it is possible to right click on the Program and see on the properties. But unfortunately it did not work.

Very good question. I can't find any way to see exactly which repository the package comes from. I'd probably file this as a bug. –  Jo-Erlend Schinstad Sep 28 '13 at 0:08
