I am a Blogger and I am using WordPress powered website on this blog. Its a good thing to have WordPress.com desktop app on my computer to write posts to my blogs. WordPress.com desktop application is a web based application developed for WordPress.com users or WordPress powered websites users. We can easily add posts, manage posts, tags and categories right away from this application. WordPress.com Desktop App supports Windows and Linux as well. If you are running Ubuntu, you can easily install WordPress.com Desktop app on Ubuntu.
To install WordPress.com Desktop App on Ubuntu, first you will need to download the DEB installation file. Then simply install the package using the following command
