# How do I reinstall the Software Center? [duplicate]

Possible Duplicate:
How to re-install Software Center?

I've somehow accidentally uninstalled Software Center and I can't seem to reinstall it. I don't have a web browser currently on the computer, as I uninstalled Firefox to get Chrome, and didn't install Chrome before my Software Center disappeared.

When I search "software center", it comes up in the Apps Available for Download section, but nothing seems to work for installing it. I click it repeatedly and nothing happens, and when I drag it into my home window it just opens the file. Help, anyone?

It's possible the software center is just failing to launch due to some bug... that unfortunately happens sometimes.Try entering software-center --debug into a terminal, if you could. –  Jjed Jan 18 '12 at 20:14

sudo apt-get install software-center
