Tony Baechler here. I've been out of action due to bad migraines, so I 
understand. The command I gave you was shorthand. You have to fill in the 
full name of the .deb package, making sure you have it downloaded first. You 
have to be root or use sudo. I should be better about giving the full 
command with the full filename, but I assumed people would know this. Again, 
as always, there is no warranty, but it should work fine with Ubuntu and 
Debian derivatives.

another, that ye may be healed. The supplication of a righteous   man 
availeth much in its working. (ASV)
