Re: Software Center instead of gnome-packagekit
It seems I must unfortunately agree now - I wanted to install 'Nitro' and
it seems only the software center caters this application, and maybe many
others. Trying to use a specific apt-url that links to the center borks the
install process, as the center is not installed by default.
Go for it then - or else it'll have to become a bug report and then mucho
