Dear Community I am Using Zorin OS from a couple of months with a long variety of applications but I am facing some issues in that a few applications have vanished from the gnome-software center.
An example like a Converter App for Linux which I installed before
To see it open Zorin Menu > enter the category where Converter is installed to > right-click Converter > click Show Details, now you should see it on Software Center, even if you don't see it on your Installed section.
This issue is new for me, but maybe terminating or killing Software Center can fix, to do it open System Monitor > Processes > right-click gnome-software > Terminate, Kill as alternative. I hope that you didn't remove certain software folders manually because, by what I could see when I did some “cleanups”, software is stored on your PC like a cache and if you remove them Software Center has to be refreshed to load the software list again correctly.
I looked on Synaptic Package Manager for Converter also and it isn't there but I did find Converseen which does the same thing and can be loaded from Synaptic or from the website using Appimage ..... Snap or Flatpak .....
@Ocka From Where do I install gnome DE for Zorin OS PRO 16.2? & how can i solve it
and I have a converter app before when Zorin Recovery mode removed 155 packages maybe that remove something resembles too
@Aravisian Brother I have a query that
the Converter app is an image conversion software
which I also install from the software center after changing the timeshift snapshot and removing packages from the bootloader Zorin os recovery mode as a recommendation.
Now at this time, that app didn't appear in the software search catalog and the converter app is based on GTK4/libadwaita
I am just curious why this is happening So please
