Hmmm. I replied to this yesterday, but apparently I didn't hit "submit post" sorry :-)

Why do you need to open .debs with fileroller? I'm not sure if it's possible. If all you need to do is install a .deb just run the command # dpkg -i <filename>.deb

Well, a little googling revealed this
Quote:
If you just are curious, and you want to take apart a *.deb file,
use "ar" (ar x $filename.deb).
(check out the whole question here)
Haven't used ar, so let me know how it works.

dpkg -x filename.deb foldername
