Problem Installing Limewire - Received Errors While Installing

When trying to install Limewire, I get the following errors. It says that I need to install certain dependencies. How can I get all of these installed automatically without having to install them one by one?

x@xx:~/Desktop$ sudo dpkg -i LimeWireLinux.deb
Selecting previously deselected package limewire-basic.
(Reading database ... 128920 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking limewire-basic (from LimeWireLinux.deb) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of limewire-basic:
limewire-basic depends on sun-java6-jre | icedtea-java7-jre | sun-java6-jdk | icedtea-java7-jdk | sun-java5-jre | sun-java5-jdk; however:
Package sun-java6-jre is not installed.
Package icedtea-java7-jre is not installed.
Package sun-java6-jdk is not installed.
Package icedtea-java7-jdk is not installed.
Package sun-java5-jre is not installed.
Package sun-java5-jdk is not installed.

The above error should tell it all. You dont have dependencies installed in your box to have limewire up and running. You first need to install the following:
Package sun-java6-jre
Package icedtea-java7-jre
Package sun-java6-jdk
Package icedtea-java7-
Package sun-java5-jre
Package sun-java5-jdk

This is only a suggestion since it has been a long time that I really _used_ Debian or Ubuntu - and it starts with a question:
Why do you use dpkg -i to install?
I think the easier tool for this is apt-get or even the GUI (Synaptic) - both of these will take care of dependencies for you IIRC.
