Installing software on Ubuntu usually entails using Synaptic or by using an apt-get command from the terminal. Unfortunately, there are still a number of packages out there that are only distributed in RPM format.

There's a utility called Alien that converts packages from one format to the other. This doesn't always mean that an rpm will work on your system, though. You will need to install some prerequisite software packages in order to install alien, however. These packages include gcc and make.

Run this command to install alien and other necessary packages:

sudo apt-get install alien dpkg-dev debhelper build-essential

To convert a package from rpm to debian format, use this command syntax. The sudo may not be necessary, but we'll include it just in case.

sudo alien packagename.rpm

To install the package, you'll use the dpkg utility, which is the internal package management tool behind debian and Ubuntu.

sudo dpkg -i packagename.deb

first search for the required software in ubuntu repos..


Code:
sudo aptitude search <your_required_software>
e.g

Code:
sudo aptitude search amsn
and if its exists.. type complete and correct name from there..

Code:
sudo aptitude install amsn -y
or you can download any .tgz or tar.gz file and

extract it by

Code:
tar -zxvf <filename.tgz>
cd filname_folder

Code:
 ./configure
make
sudo make install



Cheers!!

Urgent ? for whom? For you but no one else. Forbid from posting threads with such subjects. Use relevant titles to get more help. And google is your friend so use it first.
