If you want to install software on Linux, first try the way your distribution offers you. This is most time-efficient. If that is not possible (maybe because your distribution does not offer the software you are looking for) other ways are available. But first try the easy way. Here is how it goes on the example of the software firefox:

yast -i firefox
  • for Ubuntu Linux, do
apt-get install firefox
  • for Fedora Linux, do
yum install firefox

Equivalent installation commands

meaning SUSE Ubuntu Fedora
install ssh server yum install openssh-server
