Hi I am not able to install third party apps, it downloads normally just does not install help meenter image description here


First open Terminal and visit your Downloads folder by typing: cd Downloads

Next you need to depackage(extract) the installed deb files using dpkg as below:

sudo dpkg -i <your-.deb-package-name.deb>

Example: For your installation type sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb

Repeat for all .deb files.


Right click the .deb file and select Open with > Software Center

  • no terminal asks to put the password so I try to type more will not, does not appear and the second alternative does not open in the center of apps, I do not know why Oct 14 '16 at 23:14
  • @GuilhermeCursi You just type the password. You won't see any dots like windows. Just type your password and press "Enter" Oct 17 '16 at 10:12
