You don't seem to know the easy way to install packages.

For the most part you do not need to compile from tars.

You just install using a package manager e.g. Software Center or Synaptic.

Have a look at this: http://www.linuxnewbieguide.org/content/chapter-9-how-do-i-install-software-linux

  • Thanks for responding ,That's true , buts installing debian packages is very easy and simple . – mohammads Feb 5 '12 at 15:03
  • @Mohammed: But that's exactly what Software Center and Synaptic do -- they install deb packages from a centralized repository! So normally, there shouldn't be really any need to download and install a deb file manually. – Bernhard Reiter Feb 5 '12 at 15:30
  • And even if you can, you shouldn't (Assuming you have the package in the repo). An important aspect of Linux is lost if you go downloading random stuff on the internet and installing it in superuser mode. – user44549 Feb 5 '12 at 15:36
  • Internet speed in Ubuntu is very very low than windows.I download packages 9x faster than Ubuntu .There should be a safe software center on web , ha? – mohammads Feb 5 '12 at 15:52
