I recently installed ubuntu on my machine which already had vista. After installing, I had to install several other softwares on ubuntu to get my work done. And the softwares were of different formats like deb, bin ...
for which I had to google every time. On this blog, I have tried to accumulate those different methods.
sudo dpkg -i package_name.deb [ to install]
chmod a+x file_name.bin
first uncompress and then after getting in the folder , run these commands
make unistall [if u wanna uninstall]
Hope this should help them who are puzzled in installing different packages.
