HOW TO install/uninstall .deb files on Ubuntu!





mtemizel
To install .deb file.
Code:
sudo dpkg -i package_file.deb


To uninstall .deb file.

Code:
sudo dpkg -r package_name


And converting RPMs to DEB

Code:
fakeroot alien package_file.rpm


You must install alien and fakeroot to use this command.

Installing alien
Code:
sudo apt-get install fakeroot alien

Kudos on your post, but I found Ubuntu somewhat reserved. If you're a beginner in the Linux world, it's great, but if you're a bit experienced, use another distro. Just my 2 cents Smile

Nice howto, but it's somewhat useless, given that those commands are plastered all over the official Wiki, Forums and Unofficial Ubuntu HOWTO. Also, all of about 4 people on this forum use linux.

It's a whole lot 1337er than, say, SuSE. It's not really restricted at all; there are no packaged 'retard tools' and it offers a lot of power to the user. Care to expand onb your point?

What made you say that? The distro is based on Debian

teach us something more useful like setting up your home computer to be a webserver using dynamic DNS or something like that.

Well, given the fact that I began my Linux voyage a few years back with Slackware, I tend to lean towards distros that give you all the tools, all the possibilities, all options. Ubuntu being a small distro, only 1 cd, compared to say SuSE or Debian which are both 1 dvd or more, I'll cast my vote for the 2 any day. I'm not saying Ubuntu is junk, I'm just commenting with an opinion.
