To install a package from the repository

apt-get update
apt-get install focuswriter

(Replace focuswriter with the name of the package you want).

You may need to prefix the commands with sudo
sudo apt-get update

Using my iPod and laptop. Can I install it using a USB stick? Also how can I get my USB hub to work on my Pi?

If you can get the .deb file from the raspbian repository, then

Code: Select all

dpkg -i *.deb
would install it if you typed it while in the directory the .deb file has been placed in. Any dependency issues could be a problem as they would also need to be downloaded as .deb files.

You asked how to get your USB hub working. What is the problem? Is it on the list of hubs known to work with the Pi?
