    Don't assume gnome, it is unlikely but he could be using another window manager. – Johan Sep 8 '09 at 20:03

sudo dpkg -i package.deb

sudo gdebi package.deb

or

sudo gdebi-gtk package.deb

Which will open up a graphical installer.

dpkg -i [name of file].deb

You might need to add a sudo command in the front to elevate the command to superuser level.

In ubuntu, simply double clicking the file should be enough, if not right click the item and open it with the installer.

Or.

You could use the command line way, like stated above.
