Trouble in installing apps

(Vibhansh) #1

Briefly describe your issue below:
I was trying to get a couple apps (Cowsay, Telegram) working on my Parrot running HP Omen.
Well, I tried a couple methods: ‘git clone …’ , downloading the tar file, ‘sudo apt-get’ .
I haven’t had success, though. So, I wanted to know whether it was possible to install third-party apps for Parrot as it is based on security/privacy.

What version of Parrot are you running? (include version (e.g. 4.6), edition(e.g. Home//KDE/OVA, etc.), and architecture (currently we only support amd64)
4.6 Home/KDE

What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)
Debian Standard

Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)

Telegram is in our repo, so you can install it using sudo apt install telegram-desktop

Cowsay should already be installed.

When searching for packages to install you can use apt-cache e.g. apt-cache search telegram. It will then list all packages related to the string provided.
