This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • 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. – Garrett Sep 1 '14 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.
