1. Install dpkg-dev package if not present in your linux machine(use sudo apt-get install dpkg-dev)
2. dpkg-source -x yourfile.dsc (this will create a directory and extract the package into it)
3. To build the package go to the directory that got created in 2nd step and issue below command

dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b

4. to install the built package issue below command

dpkg -i ../yourfile_arch.deb

Above step should install the .dsc file.
