The error message No such file or directory means that the .deb file does not exist, or does not exist in the current directory.

The ~ between : and $ in the prompt represents the current working directory. ~ (when the next character is a / or, as in this case, nothing at all) is shorthand for your home directory, /home/collins.

You said you downloaded the .deb file "in download files." Assuming this means you downloaded it to your Downloads folder, that means it's located in /home/collins/Downloads rather than /home/collins.

So you should be able to install it by running this command:

sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/wineqq2012-20120719-longene.deb

If that doesn't work, try typing

sudo dpkg -i

without pressing Enter. Add a space to the end. Then drag the file from Nautilus (the file browser) into the Terminal window. That will paste its full path. Then press Enter.


I think you are running the command from a different directory.

Open Terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and make sure that the file you trying to run is listed when you do the ls command.

If you have downloaded the file using a web browser browser, then the file should be located in ~/Downloads. Change the directory to your downloads folder with cd ~/Downloads.

Once you have made sure that ls lists the file, then run the command:

sudo dpkg -i wineqq2012-20120719-longene.deb

Modify the command the following way:

sudo dpkg -i ./wineqq2012-20120719-longene.deb

This will make dpkg search the package in the current folder.

BTW, you should you use apt, to get the pkg listed in the log files, and more:

sudo apt install ./wineqq2012-20120719-longene.deb
