Using synaptic on the eeePC

Using synaptic on the eeepc:

OK, it turns out there's an easy way to install Audacity[...]. I showed you the hard way already. Now let's take a look at the easy way.

  1. Go ahead and open a terminal by starting the file manager (located under the Work tab) and selecting "Open Console Window" from the Tools menu.
  2. Now type "konqueror" to bring up the KDE file manager/web browser. If you want to avoid entering your password down the line, try typing "sudo konqueror."
  3. Select Applications
  4. Select System
  5. Select Synaptic Package Manager
  6. Under Settings, select Repositories
  7. Click add and enter "deb stable main"
  8. Click the Search button and enter Audacity, GIMP, or any other program you're looking for.
  9. Click on the check box next to the program you want to install and select Mark for installation
  10. Click Apply and you're all set.
