Correct. If you must use "dkg -i" to install something you must make
sure that you have installed the required decencies.

Option 1.  
If you .deb files of the dependencies you can install them all at the
same time: eg.
# dpkg -i libdvdcss2_1.2.5-0.2_i386.deb libc6_xxx.deb libdb1-compat_yyy.deb

Option 2.
Install the dependencies first using apt-get: eg.
# apt-get install libc6 libdb1-compat
# dpkg -i libdvdcss2_1.2.5-0.2_i386.deb
