How to download a .deb given only the repository URL?


Hi everybody,
I want to download "Inhatch plugin", but on their site there are only an instructions and a repo URL for Ubuntu and Debian, and I'm on Suse (rpm-based). In short:
Add, eg., this:
deb http://deb.inhatch.com/ubuntu-10.10 inhatch main
to your sources.list, and do "apt-get" "update" and "install inhatch-webplugins". (see http://inhatch.com/download ). The repository URL is inaccessible from the browser ("Forbidden" HTTP error on http://deb.inhatch.com/ubuntu-10.10/ ), so I can't browse for the file itself and I'll have to use the .deb tools. I'm not familiar with them, besides, the "apt-get" I tried is not made for Suse - I forced a Fedora package, so it most probably isn't working properly. There is a Suse package called "deb", containing "dpkg", etc. If I get the Inhatch .deb file, I intend to try "alien" on it or try disassemble it and put the plugin in place manually. The problem is - how to get the package file in first place.

So do you have apt-get installed? Are you having trouble installing it or are you having trouble using it?
If you just want to download with apt-get then use this:
Code:
sudo apt-get install --download-only package-name
Do not forget to add the repository first. I haven't used Suse for many, many years so I do not know if Suse might have some issues with apt-get.

You can get pretty much any package debian has ever hosted here:

http://snapshot.debian.org/

Edit: Whoops, just realized that what you want isn't carried by the main repositories. Sorry.
