Sorry for the newbie question, I am new to Linux, and have some queries.
How do I go about installing a software (debian package) I have downloaded from a website? I have tried few things like
a) Extracting the package and with terminal using the following code to install i.e. 'sudo apt-get install 'software name'& sudo apt-get install 'software name' '
b) After browsing into the extracted folder open terminal and the same code as above, but I am still unable to install it.
How do I go about installing it? and how do I install most downloaded softwares from their respective developer website and install it with terminal?
Please note I am complete newbie so hopefully you can keep things simple so I can understand and enlighten myself.
Thanks for all the help!
