I'm new to the development list but I've been hanging around on the
users list for some time.
I have a suggestion about installing packages.
When the user wants to install extra software, he has to go through
synaptic and search what he needs.
I propose that we (I know I'm not a developper but want to help out
where I can) upgrade the update-manager so that it can install packages
Here is how I would like to see things.
The users wants to install some office software, he starts up the
update-manager and he sees a list of categories.
He selects 'Office' and gets a list with all the different Office
programs the kind Ubuntu people have provided.
* Office Suite
This way, the user shouldn't have any knowledge of how the program is
named, the should just know what he wants.
Some example categories could be:
... you'll probably noticed that this list looks a lot like the Gnome
applications menu wich is a good thing! This will make things a lot less
complicated and I believe that users will have a much better experience
What is your oppinion on this?
Like I said, I'm a newbie and I hope I didn't offend anyone by getting
on the list and start spreading my ideas :-).
With kind regards,
