Installing software on Ubuntu Linux is easy. Start by using the Software Center to find a program and install it. See this [[https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingSoftware | help page]] for more details.

Note some software may require adding a custom PPA (PPA - Acronym for Personal Package Archives. Allow you to upload Ubuntu source packages to be built and published as an apt repository by Launchpad.) These are not reviewed or audited by Canonical so they may contain malware or break something. Only use PPAs you trust and if in doubt don't use it.
