I want to ask as solus is a general purpose distro and doesnt have more packages like arch or other distro,So how can i install other packages available on repos of other distros can i do it safely.
If they are not in the solus repository, nor in the 3rd party repository, not available as snap, flatpak or eventually as an appimage, you'll have to build it from source.
If there are no alternative in the repository or the app offers some functionalities that other similar apps don't have, you may want to make a package request (see link in my signature) so it can be added to the repository.
