How to post links that install software via apt?
I had a friend try stackexchange and he was disappointed that a bunch of the easier commands (like recommending installing applications) was still too complicated for someone like his father.
There is a service called apt.ubuntu.com that prompts the user to install something from the software center, for example:
You should install Banshee.
The link I used here is
https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/banshee/ This works for anything in the archive!
If you're using Firefox and/or Chromium/Chrome this launches the Ubuntu Software Center.
I think it's probably a good idea to get on an agreed-to convention earlier before it's too late to go back and update everything when we grow.
