Title: How to Install New Software?
Post by: wvdave99 on December 02, 2019, 06:32:29 pm
This is probably a really simple question, but I have yet to figure out how to install new programs on Sparky.  I'm looking for some Bible Study software and possibly AbiWord and a few other little things.

I know I'm probably overlooking something really obvious, but any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

There is always SparkyAptus    Look on the wiki

Myself - I always use command line   "apt" pretty much will do it all

"man apt"   gives the syntax, options and the flags  Youtube or web search  will give examples.
