Ubuntu(Part-2)

Coming into the second problem, which I faced was downloading applications directly from internet and trying to install them, just like I do in windows.But that created a lot of problems ,and I need to follow a lot of steps from terminal also to install the required application.Here where I came to understand the power of Ubuntu Software Center which lets you choose and install thousands of free applications directly from the internet with out the need for you to follow any steps .But sometimes, even with proper authentication I could not install certain applications telling me that there is some authentication failure. I cleared this problem with going to System-->Administration-->Synaptic Packet Manager and installing the required software from there.All the software that can be seen in Ubuntu Software Centre is also available there .
