I am new to Ubuntu. I installed a Ubuntu a few days back. I downloaded a deb files. But i don't know how to install it. Can anyone tell me how to install a downloaded deb file?
just an FYI, installing the .deb file directly will require you to manually install updates... you won't get these update notifications automatically, and hence this is not the preferred means of installation.– GarrettSep 1, 2014 at 2:05
Go to Terminal and type below commands
To Install a downloaded .deb file:
sudo dpkg -i packagename.deb
To Remove a Installed package:
sudo dpkg -r packagename
sudo dpkg -i /path/to/your.deb or use GDebi.
More info can be found on the wiki about installing software.
