Easily install software on KNOPPIX

APT to the rescue! 

Steps to install software easily on KNOPPIX via command-line APT

You probably could use Synaptic Package Manager or aptitude in KNOPPIX as well, but one of us doesn't like graphical interfaces. ;-)   (I have used aptitude to look at the packages, but not to install them.)  Therefore, this statement remains untested.

  1. Get to a root shell by pressing Left Control, Left Alt, and F2
  2. Type the command apt-get update
  3. Wait for KNOPPIX to fetch the Debian Repositories. (Insert waiting music here :-)
  4. The command apt-get install wesnoth will install the latest stable version of the popular FOSS game called The Battle for Wesnoth.
  5. Happy software management!
