Hi,

are there any error messages? If not, how do you know it was not installed?

Finally, alien should normally only be a last resort. What is it that you are trying to install?

Hi,

I've not used sawmill before, but presumably it needs to be configured and started. Did the tar.gz come with any documentation? Where did you get it from?

umm 127.0.0.1 is the localhost... you are running Internet Explorer on your Ubuntu machine?

Anyway, why in particular do you want to use sawmill? Is there not something already packaged for Ubuntu that would fill your needs?

There is no solution to convert "any tar.gz" into a Debian package. If that is your goal it seems you have some gaps in your understanding of GNU/Linux and package management. I suggest you do some background reading about GNU/Linux systems and package management. I'm sure some of the other members can suggest some good newbie documentation. If not, I'll try to dig up some.
