I downloaded Dropbox .deb from https://www.dropbox.com/install?os=lnx and the Google Voice Chat plugin from https://www.google.com/chat/video but when I click on the .deb files they open in Ubuntu Software Center. And when I click on install, nothing happens. The install button just turns grey.

I'm running 32 bit Ubuntu 12.10
