My software installer does nothing on Ubuntu 20.04 . I download the deb package and click on it, nothing happens. I installed Chrome with the terminal by finding a command line that downloaded and installed the package through the terminal. Now I want MegaSync and can't find a command line. If it allows me to download a package and it's a software installer, is it wrong to assume that it should open the package? MegaSync offers the command line "sudo apt install /path/to/package.deb" but that comes back as invalid. Is this going to be an issue for downloading anything on Ubuntu?
Follow these steps to install Mega Desktop App:
Go to https://mega.io/sync. Choose the Linux platform. Choose Ubuntu 20.04 as the Linux version.
Click on Download. A dialogue box might appear in Firefox depending upon the settings. Choose Save File and click OK.
Open the folder where the file is saved. You can do that by clicking on the folder icon:
Once you are in the folder, right click and choose Open in Terminal.
Now the terminal will open. Execute the following command:
sudo apt install ./megasync-xUbuntu_20.04_amd64.deb
Note: The file name may vary. Please use the name of the file which you have downloaded.
After following the above steps, the application would have been successfully installed.
