This means you are not installing the Debian package.

Here it looks as if you are not using an official Debian package (otherwise 
you would not be needed 'dpkg -i' and it would not be installing in /opt).

Please contact the supplier of your software.

If you want general help, the debian-user list is the _only_ correct place 
to ask, not the addresses you have used now. In general it is not really 
appreciated to post questions to multiple lists at the same time, 
especially not if they are completely inappropriate lists.

Good luck with solving your installation problem.
