Is there a simpler way to do this..I mean, installing straight from desktop.....Now I know how to install going through a website, but what if I already have this software on my desktop already and want to install it from there......
That would be simple enough.
Thank you guys
If you're talking about point-and-click InstallShield type of thing, well that depends on how the vendor decides to package their software. Some Linux applications do come like that, but that is typically rare. If you are dealing with a binary software package in RPM / DEB format on a Fedora / Ubuntu box, or some similar tandem, then there is usually a desktop GUI tool that will assist you with installing software that exists in a repository for that distribution. But if you're dealing with software that you have to compile from source, or that does not have an install GUI built for it, then you must get your feet wet in the terminal.
As far as software you already have on your desktop, the only new step I added was the wget command. And I only added that to remove any doubt about the file you were downloading. You could just as easily have done:
unzip /home/USERNAME/Desktop/SugarCE-5.2.0f.zipor similar.
