this is my first time using linux. I bought a used lenovo laptop, and since I only need it for my studies I figured Elementary OS would be faster and prettier. It is both of these things, but I did run in some problems a quick google search couldn't resolve, and I'd appreciate the help
First of, the appcenter. Yes I know there are already some solutions online but none worked for me. Things I tried:
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt-get --purge remove appcenter
sudo apt install appcenter
sudo apt update -y
In the end I just searched the net for names of the apps I needed and installed the using apt install. however some did install but didn't show up in the Applications on the top left corner, even though the installation was succesfull, with a progress bar and everything.
After that I downloaded the files from the respective websites, but I have no clue how to install *.tar.xz and *.tar.bz files, I did download Gdebi and Synapse, yet no progress.
The programs I still can't install are tor browser, skype and FANcon. I don't really need the appcenter but I'd like to know how to install the last two programs
EDIT: I installes the gnome-software appcenter, this one works fine. Would've been nice to get the native one working, oh well
