Cannot install QLC on Ubuntu

I cannot install PLC 4.10.4 on Ubuntu 16.04. The Software centre just sits there doing nothing.

What happens when you open a terminal and type

Code: Select all

sudo apt install qlcplus
Or just install the deb package on the download page http://www.qlcplus.org/downloads.html

Most probably typo. Nevertheless I don't think Software Centre knows anything about QLC+

Ooops nope it isn't in the official repos yet, I forgot to check if the package was 3rd Party. It was in my apt because I already installed it from the 3rd Party deb before. So no you can't install it through apt default repos or through the GUI apts Software & Updates or Ubuntu Software. When I installed it I just went to the qlcplus,org and clicked on the appropriate deb package rather than wget as the package name will change as time goes by.
