    When I do "sudo apt-get update" … password: and enter my password and it said :"sorry, try again."….. why?

    apt-get update is updating the resources that is available so u are not doing any changes on your computer.

    Hi I'm trying to install Anaconda using only the terminal however sudo apt-get install in unable to locate the file is there an other way?

    1. apt-get update just updates your sources (using /etc/apt/sources.list). To update your software for real, use 'apt-get upgrade'.

    2. You can apt-get install software that's already on your computer. When said software already exists, apt-get install will simply update it with the newest version.

    Don't worry about naming collisions (like a different program that happens to have the same name as the original overwriting it), because the guys that maintain the repo make sure to give each package an unique name. Unless you're writing your own shell scripts and stuffing them in /usr/bin, nothing will happen. Plus, for software installed via make (or the aforementioned /usr/bin move), you should move it to /usr/local/bin instead so it remains separate from the package manager.

    Thanks Bucky, another good video 🙂
    I want to note (for commentors) that APT will only work on some distros (e.g. Mint, Ubuntu, Debian). Others might use different stuff like RPM for Fedora/RedHat or Pacman for Arch/Manjaro. point is, you should check what's your distro's package tool/manager and its syntax, in case you chose a different one

    in their repo usually they have older versions so you mostly will need install tools without apt-get if you want latest versions..

  23. Omer Ayverdi Avatar

    executables run in terminal like this ./programName

    you need to put dot and slash before executable file to run it.

    ah ha, I got it to work, but instead of apt-get I had to use zypper

  25. Austin Delbeck Avatar

    Is it the same process to install programs on Fedora 22?
    I've been seeking how to install programs but I couldn't :(.
    Help me¡ I can't even watch youtube on Fedora

    11, 12, and 13 have the EXACT SAME intro 0.0. It's creepy when you click between them without listening to more than the introduction

  29. ThePassingVoid Avatar

    If you are using a distribution based on Red Hat Enterprise (Fedora, CentOS, ClearOS, etc) you can use "yum" or "dnf" (Some newer distros like Fedora 22 have replaced yum with dnf) instead of "apt-get"

    I appreciate Bucky for this tutorial but he pretty much makes glaring misses in every video and always seems to do things the hard way so much that it makes Linux seem complicated. For instance, why would anyone need to use a shell script to start a program via the command line more than once? Any self-respecting Linux user would know that you can pin the app to the side launcher, add a path for a command line launcher, create a .desktop entry. More often than not, applications will do this for you. Again, not being negative but…
