Installing deb files from the command line


Have you ever noticed if you use dpkg in Ubuntu it doesn’t annoyingly install the dependencies?

Here’s how

You can install gdebi-core, which is the command line version of the GDebi package installer from 10.04 and earlier. In the newer versions of Ubuntu, the Software Center is used to install debs, which doesn’t have a command line equivalent.

sudo apt-get install gdebi-core

To install a deb package using gdebi, just run:

sudo gdebi my_package_1.0.deb
