HOW TO SEE SOURCE CODE OF OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARES

Praveen Singh         No comments

Just open your terminal and write this(i got  to know about this command by jerome1232 from ubuntuforums) --

$ apt-get source {software}
eg--apt-get source smplayer

 When i tried this command,i found an error message because one of the package was not installed.In my case it was showing "dpkg-dev".for finding out whether the package is installed or not, type this in your terminal--

$ dpkg -s {package name}

For red-hat users--

$ rpm -qa|grep {package name}

If you do not get any output it means package is not installed.

For debian users,you can install the package by running well know command--

$ sudo apt-get install {package-name}
