    awesomepilot,
    You can use the command-line interface for PPM, petget. So,
    Code:
    sudo petget application
    would work if you were trying to install "application".

    If you prefer the GUI, you can use that too by clicking on the Install Icon, and then on the Install Software button. (There might be an easier way, but this is the way I've always done it.)
