    Welcome to the forums!

    Assuming that .deb files work in Linspire like they do in Debian, you'll need to go to a terminal or konsole, enter su to gain root privileges, and then enter the following command:

    dpkg -i /path/to/file/filename.deb
    For example, if it's juno.deb and it's in your /home/username directory, it would be like this:

    dpkg -i /home/username/juno.deb
    Let us know how it goes, and have fun with Linux.
