    Iinpus linux lite - Installing software

    Ok so im completly new here and also completly new to linux OS the fact of the matter is that i had never even seen the linux OS before 4pm today

    1. press alt+f2 or go to Files->My Documents to open the File Manager and then go to File->Terminal.
    2. In the terminal type: xfce-setting-show
    3. Click Desktop, then go to Behaviour tab
    4. Enable "Show desktop menu on right click"
    5. Right clicking on the desktop will now give you more options.
    6. Click System-> Add/Remove Software
    7. Give your password

    You will see the available software and can choose to install anything that is on that list.
    You must be connected to the Internet, so it can download the programs and install them for you.

    Or open the terminal and type:
    sudo yum install <program_name>
    For example:
    sudo yum install vlc
    The above command will install VLC video player.

    You can also see a video of these instructions Yet Another Technology Site: How to install programs in Acer Aspire Onehere.
