synaptic (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: synaptic


I like to use open source software, but it's really hard to figure out what packages are good or not. Usually I try to make my determination based on the popularity of an app on the internet.

It would be a huge help if I could just see which ones are most popular in Synaptic. If there was a way to record how many times an app is downloaded or installed would be great. Could there be a download tracker?

Package: synaptic 0.62.5ubuntu3
ProcAttrCurrent: unconfined
