Install Linux Apps w/ Terminal

The Linux terminal (similar to Command Prompt on Windows) is very powerful. It can do anything that can be done in the GUI (graphical user interface) and more. One of the operations that can be done is installing software. This can also be done from the GUI but not in all cases.

To install an application on Linux Mint, Ubuntu, or Pop!_OS simply type…

sudo apt-get install name_of_appliction

Hit enter and the APT will download and install GIMP for you.

  • APT (Advanced Packaging Tool)
  • sudo – runs an application temporarily with admin (administrator) privileges.
