Basic Software installation on Linux

How to install the software like Google chrome, VLC player and java basically and I need some real time experience people who have familiar with Linux environment please revert me back and I am very new to Linux environment.

It depends on what distro you are using (Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, Arch…)


For an example, If you are using Debian based environment, you need to do following command on the terminal

sudo apt-get install packagename

//Where package name is software name like vlc
If you use Redhat based systems, then use below command

sudo yum install packagename

Exactly! So, you see - you already know the basics. You can always use some package manager to do that automatically. E.g Synaptic.

For .deb files, u can also use gdebi package installer
