Re: How do I install KMess?
I am trying to install kmess_1.2.1-1_i386.deb. How do I install it? When I
try apt-get install Kmess, I get a message about it being in the database but
no available version and that it may have been mentioned in a dependecy...
I downloaded it from SourceForge.net and saved it to a directory.
I tried this....
dpkg -I kmess_1.2.1-1_i386.deb
Try using a lower case "i" instead of "I" in your command...i.e. "dpkg
-i kmess_1.2.1-1_i386.deb" if you want to install it. The capital "I"
will provide info on the package.
Reference: man dpkg...:
"dpkg can be also be used as a front-end to dpkg-deb. The following
are dpkg-deb actions, and if they are encountered, dpkg just runs
dpkg-deb with the parameters given to it:
-X, --vextract, and
Please refer to dpkg-deb(1) for information about these actions."
