xtile is a kind of window tiling tool. I've tried to download the *.deb package from the following link:

http://www.ubuntugeek.com/x-tile-gnome-applet-for-your-panel-or-optionally-a-standalone-application.html

When I double-click on it from nautilus ubuntu software centre opens up and shows an internal error. Any headers on what the problem could be?

First Download x-tile From Here Once it downloads probably to the Downloads folder, press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command below.

cd Downloads

Once you're in Downloads, do

sudo dpkg -i x-tile_2.3.1-1_all.deb

And that will install x-tile
