Linux software installation to improve
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 3, 2007
First things first: I like the way Linux applications are installed (apt-get, emerge, yum and such are great tools).
However, it would be nice if things were standardized a bit more (without taking away choice, of course!).
The Free Standards Group are discussing a standard API for package management. This way, if you wish to install a package that's not in the repositories, you could still easily install it (and have it registered in your package management program).

Installing a new application on Linux can be challenging, even for experts. Now, the LSB (Linux Standard Base) project and its parent organization, the FSG (Free Standards Group), have a plan for how to make it easier for both users and developers.
Last month, key people in the Linux software packaging world and ISVs (independent software vendors) got together in Berlin, Germany to discuss the future of Linux application packaging

Fedora "software sources" vs. Ubuntu "software repositories"
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 23, 2011
I am back to the "Red" side at the moment installing a Fedora 14 virtual machine in VMWare. I have not used Fedora since about 3 or 4. I want to install Gnome Commander. In Ubuntu I check the repository "...ubuntu lucid partner" and I can find Gnome Commander within the Synaptic Package Manager tool.
In Fedora 14 I do not find Gnome Commander listed in the Add/Remove Software app. I find something which looks similar to the Ubuntu Repositories functionality in System; Administration; Software Sources. However, these all appear to be Fedora specific.
So I did a search and determined that Gnome Commander was available via yum.
Apple software vs Windows software on Linux...
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 25, 2003
First, is it possible to install Apple software on Linux? If so, since Apple's OSX is based off of Linux(correct?), would it run any more smoothly than Windows software? I'm just thinking, perhaps for things like WarCraft 3 or maybe even Photoshop, the programs would run more nativly than Windows software...
Running compiled software of CentOS on Ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 26, 2013
I wanted to know if there is any issue in what I am doing.
I compiled the latest version of Python 2.7.3 on CentOS 5.9 and its running properly.
I compiled it at :
If I copy this folder to a ubuntu server as well, it works without any errors.
I have been trying to figure out what is the issue in this ?
Could it be unstable ?

Joli OS 1.2 Software Channel
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 24, 2011
I looked around for the Joli OS Forums, but they don't seem to have that but they do have a support page. I was wondering if anyone on here has used Joli OS 1.2 on their system. If you have can you help me with one thing. I know Joli OS is basically based on Ubuntu 10.04, just a cloud page for a desktop. Its settings are similar to all with Ubuntu. So for my question, I'm trying to install Xara Xtreme on here but when I load the .deb file it says the same version is already in the software channel. I'm not to sure if it means synaptic or something else such as the main add button (The green plus icon to the left) for adding apps mainly just shortcuts to web pages.
Here's a screenshot showing what its telling me.
"Add button" Don't know where to find this software channel
Results "Xara Xtreme" - Nothing
Super multimedia software for Ubuntu
location: linux.com - date: February 6, 2010
During the last 1-2 months that I'm using Ubuntu side by side of Windows 7, to replace it with windows, I've found a few lacks in Ubuntu, but here's the most important one:
It lacks a powerful multimedia software, as for example "Jet Audio" or "The KM Player" in windows.
is there any software that much powerful for Ubuntu linux?
If so, I'd be glad to know, and to know where to download.
ThanX so much.
What distro or software make an EASY Linux media box including TV (NTSC)?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 16, 2010
I'm looking for the easiest way I can set up my system so that I can use my TV tuner card and Linux similar to the way I can with Microsoft's Media Center (Vista or 7). I've tried MythTV on Ubuntu 9 & 10 and even tried several different distro's devoted exclusively to MythTV (Mythbuntu, KnoppMyth, Mythdora, etc.). But it seems that either I am too stupid to understand all the gobbledeegook settings (more than half of which seem to be necessary for certain weirdo countries) or the authors are too "egg-head" to provide simple setup routines or even descent instructions. I mean, my system is used in the USA (Denver, Colorado) so this shouldn't be that hard. Should it? (WTF MythTV?!) Anyway, I have given up trying to use MythTV because it's simply too complicated (not to be punning).
Still, I desperately want to drop Windows altogether but this seeming lack of even a good Linux media application for my TV card, or even one that I can set up easily, keeps me running back to
