Cannot instal program in Ubuntu   04 November 2016, 10:27

I am using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on a laptop.

I have downloaded and saved onto a USB Memory Stick - networx_linux_amd64.deb
It is 1.4MB in size.

When I click this file, it opens a Ubuntu Software window for Networx, which includes an “Install” button, and the information “Details, Size, 5.1 MB”. When I click this button, it changes to “Installing” for about two seconds. Nothing else happens.

What should happen, and where do I go from here?

So does it revert to Install or changes to Installed or Reinstall?

If it reverts to Install, I guess there may be something wrong with the package. In that case, you can try unpacking and running the ELF-binary directly. You may also need to have installed Indicator Systemtray Unity to have NetWorx's icon displayed.

Sometimes you can get the answer faster if you try the forum search and/or have a look at the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.
