I was able to dpkg my wingide program, but I'm having trouble installing it

Hi. I'm having trouble installing the WingIDE for python scripting on my Kali Linux distribution.

NOTE: please do not try to send me to the Kali Linux Forums. They've already refused to help me.

I downloaded WingIDE:
root@samkali:~/Downloads# ls

and depackaged it with the terminal:
root@samkali:~/Downloads# dpkg -i --ignore-depends=libqt4-webkit wingide-personal5_5.0.9-1_amd64.deb
(Reading database ... 338345 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack wingide-personal5_5.0.9-1_amd64.deb ...
Unpacking wingide-personal5 (5.0.9-1) over (5.0.9-1) ...
Setting up wingide-personal5 (5.0.9-1) ...
Processing triggers for menu (2.1.47+b1) ...

However, when I tried to finish installing it, it said that it's unable to locate the package:
root@samkali:~/Downloads# apt-get install wingide-personal5_5.0.9-1_amd64.deb
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package wingide-personal5_5.0.9-1_amd64.deb
E: Couldn't find any package by glob 'wingide-personal5_5.0.9-1_amd64.deb'
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'wingide-personal5_5.0.9-1_amd64.deb'

This is strange, because as shown in the output of my ls command of the Downloads directory above, I do indeed have the wingide-personal package. So what's going on?

Please read this:

Kali is designed very specifically for one thing: pentesting. It's not for use as a desktop, not for use in software development, not for use in media editing or viewing/listening, not for use for anything but pentesting.

Welcome to LQ.

I've decided to use Idle instead of WingIDE. You can close this thread. Thanks for your responses.
