Using Linux is quite hard if one’s starting happened with Windows. In Windows, everything is on GUI, but on Linux, it’s mostly on command line.

On Linux, every software installed is called packages. Even the drivers, apps all are counted as packages. You can manage packages via GUI tool called “Synaptic Package Manager”.

In order to get it on your system,

1. Start Terminal.

2. Run the following commands:
sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get install synaptic

It’s simple with awesome GUI that enables you to install, remove, repair or update packages on your system.
