I’m almost a newcomer to Lubuntu, so I’ll probably be a bit clumsy . I used it for a short time some time ago. It was Lubuntu 14 or 16, not sure.
Whatever. I’m using Lubuntu 19 now. I installed it correctly, but I’m finding quite a headache while trying to install programs (or apps, not sure about the name.) I remember that previous version had a sort of “app store” like Android or Apple, and it was really easy to install them.
I found out only after installing it that LB19 has no app store whatsoever. At least, I can’t find it. So I had to download tarballs. As a Linux amateur, I Googled for hours, checking Ubuntu forums and tech blogs and so. I found instructions to install tarballs via terminal, but none of them worked at all (you know, cd, configure, make and so…). Very often, the authors describe even a different OS than the one I’m using. It’s confusing and (I must say) terribly annoying.
Can you suggest me any “app store” where I can find programs ready to install with a click? I know it might look like I have quite a nerve (this is Linux), but I can’t just find any other solution.
Thank you very much for your patience
