It is a graphical application that is used to install stand-alone deb packages (i.e. those which you have downloaded to your computer rather than installed from a repository).

No, you do not need it. However, it is very useful if you want a graphical application that is used to install stand-alone deb packages.

@linux-man,


I'm going to have to ask you to stop asking one-line questions showing zero effort, for things which you can perform a web search about. You are showing no effort and opening multiple threads with these questions. Please do not repeat this behavior. Please do some research. Review the link about how to use the LQ forums from my signature.
