Ubuntu and Debian .deb Installation
Q. How do I install a .deb file in a Debian, Ubuntu, Mint or any other Debian derivative GNU/Linux distribution?
Well, of course the first thing you need to do is to download the .deb file, which stands for Debian Package.
Once you have it you have to use
dpkg -i name-of-file.deb
Let’s see an example
First download the file:
cd /tmp wget http://uri/file.deb dpkg -i file.deb
That is if you are on Debian, if you are using Ubuntu you will have to use sudo, because you need to be root.
sudo dpkg -i file.deb
