I search a library called pango in 12.04 software center, but it returns nothing.

But if I search for libpango, it will returns libpango1.0-dev.

I wonder how to search for a library in a correct way in the software center?

What if in command line?



Searching for a library:

apt-cache search library-name-here

Obtain the source code:

sudo apt-get source library-or-program-name-here
