    I can't help but asking this question.
    Can someone enlighten me why there is no installation wizard in Linux like in windows?

    Linux has "package management". Not to say there aren't any installers with linux, some programs do have installers. I'm not sure what type of distribution you're using, but I'll just take a wild stab and say Ubuntu.

    Debian based systems have a program called apt as a package manager.

    In ubuntu you could do something like this:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install package_name
    Replace package_name with the name of the package you want to install. A lot of times the name is easy to just "figure out". Also, you probably have something like Synaptic that will let you pick and choose from all kinds of packages.

    There is.

    if you are not using the package manager in your distro, then you are ignoring the tools meant to make installing and removing software easy.
