Ubuntu Software centre
Employees that are using Ubuntu 11.10 or Ubuntu version that post-date that version, can install/remove software applications themselves. This is done using Softwarecenter.
The Ubuntu Softwarecenter uses a concept that is similar to those seen when installing apps using Google Play, Appstore, etc.
Ubuntu Softwarecenter makes it possible to:
- Install and uninstall software applications.
- Buy software applications.
- Write reviews on software applications.
Installing software applications
To install an application, you can the search field to the right if you know the name of the application, E.G audacity.
To read more about the program before installing it, press "More info.
If you wish to limit your search when looking for applications, you can limit the number of sources. The standard setup is to search through all sources, but you can alter you sources if you wish to only look for software from a specific source, E.G UiB.
*Note: You do not have access to add your own sources.
To remove an application, look up the application in the same way as when you first installed it. You will see that the "Install" button is replaced with "Remove" in order for you to uninstall the application.
Not able to find the application you were looking for?
If you are not able to find the application, it might not be ready for distribution or you do not have access to it.
You will then need to contact BRITA (Brukerstøtten for ansatte) where you log in with your UiB information and make an issue requesting that to be made avaliable.
You will be notified when the application is ready to be installed from you softwarecenter.
Note: Licensed will only be avaliable on those computers that have the rights to use that particular software.
