Bug#331528: ITP: debinstaller -- a graphical frontend for installing local .deb packages

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Vegar Storvann <v@sunscream.net>

* Package name    : debinstaller
  Version         : 0.2.2
  Upstream Author : Mikkel Kamstrup Erlandsen

  Description     : a graphical frontend for installing local .deb packages

Far too often people (read: newbies) get confused when they can't get
*insert favorite package manager* to install the .deb's they've just
downloaded. With DebInstaller installation is simply a double click
away.  No fancy features, just a small dialog that ask for the sudo password
and if you really want to install.
