I've noticed that Ubuntu 10.10 manage single .deb files with Ubuntu Software Center. Since I find it too heavy to load I've installed gdebi with:
sudo apt-get install gdebi
and I've set it as default application to open any .deb file.
My question is: is it safe/supported this kind of operation? I mean: does gdebi still relates to internal apt-get to satisfy deps and install .deb files?
