I'm back to Debian. Arch Linux is still my favorite distribution, but I'm using Debian for the last months.

Today I want to share something for the newbies.

How to install a Debian package (.deb file)

dpkg -i file.deb

That is it, now if you want to un-install it later.

dpkg -r [package name]

That was using the terminal, if you have a graphic desktop, you may just double click on the deb file.
