Run synaptic and search for gdebi. Or, on the command line 'sudo apt-get install gdebi'(withut single-quotes). If you have a fast connection and the package you downloaded isn't too large just search for the package you downloaded with Synaptic.

ok what has happened with the screen resolution is the auto setup scripts when resolution your resolution did the default generic resolution file. I'm sure the big Gui Ubuntu has a Gui interface for the xorg.config file. but if not make a back up of your old one in case. then open a console sudo xorgcfg.
then you should then have a new setup restart the xserver log out then log in. go that what gnome admin sys thing and look for changing the reselution. if that doesn't work then do a full (type xorgconfig). safe setting are 1 for keyboard the mouse is auto. 2 on width 8 on depth what ever you card mem is then let xorg pic the card say no to it then make sure you select th highest you know your monitor can do 1024x780 what ever . use at least 16 bit. if all else fails boot up you live cd then copy the xorg.conf file from the /live cd /etc/x11/ folder then copy it to you hard drive /etc/x11/ folder this is the fix.


resolution, screen
