you, basically have to find the lowest of the dependencies, and install that first.
- then work out the others, one at a time. it's a painful process.

- see if those files can be install automatically within synaptic, as that is often an easier way.

Can't you just run

Code:
dpkg -i /folder_containing_debs/*.deb
I've not run into problems with that yet.

... and after the above, run "apt-get -f install" for missing dependencies.
You could look at gdebi as well (stick with the *-core package).
