    Unhappy Unable to install .deb packages..


    I have tried to install Limewire.deb package and flash player .deb packages using apt-get..
    using the command..

    sudo apt-get install package name

    and my system says

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Couldn't find package flash-plugin_9.0.124.0-release-1_i386.deb

    Though the package is in the same directory in which I am executing the command.

    What should I do now??

    Install them using dpkg e.g.
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i somefile.deb

    hey thanks..
    now the package is successfully installed..
    but i m still facing problem with my flast player..
    i have a file
    flash-plugin_9.0.124.0-release-1_i386.deb
    and when i tried to install it using dpkg..it said
    Code:
    (Reading database ... 136837 files and directories currently installed.)
    Preparing to replace flash-plugin 9.0.124.0-release-1 (using flash-plugin_9.0.124.0-release-1_i386.deb) ...
    Unpacking replacement flash-plugin ...
    Setting up flash-plugin (9.0.124.0-release-1) ...
    
    Processing triggers for libc6 ...
    ldconfig deferred processing now taking place
    what does that actually mean..
    and when i opened youtube to check whether the flash player has been installed or not.. it said tht either the java script is turned off or i m using an old version of the player.. though i downloaded it yesterday from adobe flash player's official site..
    what should I do now??

    You can check if the plugin is correctly installed and recognised by Firefox, by running Firefox and entering the command below in the address bar
    Code:
    about:plugins
    If you are using Ubuntu, the best way to ensure that Flash and other plugins are installed is to run the command
    Code:
    sudo aptitude update
    sudo aptitude install ubuntu-restricted-extras
    You may need to enable the universe and multiverse repositories.

    think limewire needs java also consider frostwire(gpl) which is based on limewire but has some of the features of the paid version
