Synaptic Package Manager has made its way out of Ubuntu 11.10. The primary means of graphically added applications will be the Software Center. However, comparing the two applications, there are 4 main functions that the Software Center does not include. The Software Center does not:
- Fix broken packages
- Upgrade or downgrade a single or multiple packages
- Lock packages to a specific version
- Force install of a specific version of a package
You can still install Synaptic using the following command.
sudo apt-get install synaptic
- RedBox Instant by Verizon review
- Ubuntu 13.04 release schedule
- USB Startup Disk Creator Ubuntu 10.04 boots “Unknown keyword in configuration file”
- Shuttleworth announces Ubuntu 14.04LTS
- Canonical announces no more Kubuntu and 5 year Desktop support
