b. Gdebi Package Manager‌

“What? Another Package Manager?” I can hear you say! Yes that is correct. Not all packages are available on the official channels and Gdebi is really good at installing 3rd party software from external sites – why? Because it will run the installation but report back if there are any missing dependencies. Please be aware that some 3rd party software may have been written for earlier versions of Ubuntu/forks and may require installation of older libraries – there is a potential risk that this could bork your system. You have been warned!


Gdebi interface:


On first install instead of ‘Reinstall package’ you would just see an ‘Install Package’ button.
