how DO you install software on linux?

I can't figure it out.
>>
>>52438424
kek for real? there's a package manager for a reason, use it.

if you're compiling from source instead, read the documentation of the program you want to compile, there's usually a readme file or instructions on the site where you found it, in most cases you just need to use 3 commands:

./configure
make
install

>useful software

I really hate when people do this. I'm a geophysicist. Know what useful software is for me?

http://www.cwp.mines.edu/~john/GPGN461.561/ch1-14.pdf

Also gcc, gfortran, and octave. Which I could get running on cygwin on Windows, but why bother when I can keep windows for just muh gaems and do my actual work on Linux, where I prefer to do pretty much anything except muh gaems.

I love how "useful software" always has to mean Photoshop (admittedly the one big thing that doesn't have a quality replacement on Linux, but 95% of you reading this that do use it, use it to make super dank pepes and not anything actually productive), Office (because fuck LibreOffice), and AutoCAD (because fuck the FOSS alternatives).

I can run all of those in wine. I even run my games in wine.

>AutoCAD (because fuck the FOSS alternatives).
If you need cad for linux there's bricscad.
Ain't free as in beer neither free as in freedom but it's a native linux application

Yeah, ubuntu is the opposite of user friendly

Confirmed. Just try using git for example

You have to be fucking delusional to be as anti-gui as most loonix fags are.

The program in your screenshot is way more fluttered and confusing than some text in terminal

>>52439596
cluttered*

>>52437535

>>52439596
It's also 1000% more informative than some lines of text in a terminal with a different, overly long and detailed cmdline being needed to display all the individual bits of information and still not actually showing you shit like a quick branching graph or visual diff. I have to use cmdline git at work atm for a client instead of sourcetree, which is my usual, and it is goddamn awful.

Also, if you think that UI is cluttered you may need to get looked at by a doctor. It's a table in the center, a list of files in the lower left and a diff of the selected file to the right. It isn't fucking dizzying or hard to navigate at all unless you wanna do it on a 640x480 screen.
