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
