Revision of Is CNR the Easiest Way to Get Software in Ubuntu? from Thu, 12/06/2007 - 19:56

CNR (Click’N'Run) is Linspire’s website and client software that provides an easy way to discover and install free and commercial Linux software. Linspire just released the beta with support for their own distributions as well as Ubuntu. Does it make installing software in Ubuntu easier? is a free one-click software delivery service designed to standardize the process and eliminate the complexity of finding, installing and managing Linux software for the most popular desktop Linux distributions, both Debian and RPM based.

I installed the required CNR client software for Ubuntu 7.10 by downloading the available DEB package. After installing it, a CNR launcher was added to my Application menu under System Tools.
