assuming you're on debian, you would do dpkg -i /path/to/deb-file
use man dpkg for more information


the same works for ubuntu. If you're on another distrobution, you'd have to look into what to do to install foreign packages.

you can also try to find the apt repository for that app, then just apt-get install and away you go. FYI in both cases you will need to be root, not user.
