my sysadmin set up my work machine such that I don't have root privilege but I can use ubuntu software center to install packages by providing my password.
I login to that Ubuntu machine remotely, and I'd like to install some packages from the software center, how can I do this?
I tried "software-center" , which gives me the interface, but nothing happens when I click on "install"
NOTE: both machines involved are ubuntu machine.
This post might help understand my situation, my sys-admin did the same thing. I don't know how he/she implemented it.
Thank you in advance.
my sys-admin say that the software-center cannot go through X-forwarding, so I cannot install via software center using ssh. But I will try the remote desktop thing.
Thank you all for inputs!
