How do you install debian packages in mepis?

I can't figure out how to install a game called warzone 2100 properly. Also how would I uninstall it in case I don't like it?

If its a deb file, then use "dpkg -i some.deb". Take a look at the manual (man dpkg) for detailed instructions on how to use it.

Start the Synaptic package manager program and search for it. You may have to add some additional debian repositories. I believe that if you add the world repository (I'm not on a Linux machine at the moment), you will probably be able to find it. Synaptic will install it for you once you select it to be installed.
