While studying ideas on the Software Manager I found a number of similar ideas about selecting & installing multiple applications at once:
Glad to see that the password issue has been solved in recent versions of the Software Manager.
Would be great if we could get the resume of download after internet connection failure too...
Had the same Idea so i promote and add my explaination why:
(The Scenario is, you're new to Linux and a Friend of you give you a Linux Mint and says make long PWDs, don't install too much at once, so if something breaks you know what it was. Doing that results in that you get bored with Software Manager, because after you installed a Game and tested it, you have to enter again a gigantic PWD for the next Install!)
Forwarding for consideration.
Personally speaking, I think that these ideas would be a huge improvement to the software manager.
New -> Considered
Like the idea
Should add an easier way to install ad-ons too
Like in muon on kde
Indeed, Synaptic is what I mostly use because of this.
But Synaptic does not give good overviews. The Software Manager is a much more pleasant way to browse for software. Synaptics is good for technicians (like myself, but not the people I install for), but you basically need to know what you are looking for to find the things you need there.
The Software Manager is a very nice tool, it just needs some small polish to become even better.
