Hi,

I come from ubuntu and most of the people know that there is a app called application software where you can go and download software in one-click(like Microsoft store in windows). But why isn't there on in sabayon? do i have to rely on the terminal for everything? If i can, how do i get the Application software app using terminal? let me know ASAP and Thank You.

There is Rigo, that is the Graphical Package Manager

Yep, just as joost said, you can use Rigo which is a GUI (Graphical User Interface) around entropy (Sabayon's package management system).

You will find that when you ask for help though, you'll mostly get terminal commands. It's much easier to say "Type this exact thing" then it is to say "look for this button, click it, then look for this button, then click it, then go to the search bar, click in, then type...."
