Synaptic in Freespire.


 Advanced Packaging Tool or APT is a way to obtain free software packages from the Internet.

Apt-get needs to be updated all the time with the new applications being added regularly to the Repositories. To update apt , run the command from konsole:

sudo apt-get update


However If you have created the root account and using it in Freespire, you don't have to prefix sudo to the commands.

To install and application, for example frozen-bubble, enter the command from konsole:

sudo apt-get install frozen-bubble


If you need some thing a little bit more graphical try Synaptic, which is a graphical package management program for apt. It provides the same features as the apt-get command line utility with a GUI front-end based on Gtk+. It can Install, remove, upgrade and downgrade single and multiple packages. It also sorts packages by name, status, size or version.

To install Synaptic in Freespire, execute the command from konsole:

sudo apt-get install synaptic


Again, if have created a root account, you don't have to prefix sudo to the commands.
