    Exclamation Problem related to installing packages in ubuntu!!


    I have just installed ubuntu on my laptop from the version which i download a couple of months ago from the official site itself..
    now i m having problems while installing the packages..
    just wanted to know how do we install the packages...
    eg- i have a rpm package of vlc player..
    and when i tried to install it using alien..
    i tried
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install alien
    It told that..
    Code:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Couldn't find package alien
    So what should I do now..
