How to Install .deb file in Linux MInt/Ubuntu/And other variants

For the Debian variant Linux operating systems, for offline installations  we use .deb files. Like .exe files, they can be downloaded from  internet. Then what will you do with that?
Here is how to install a .deb file in Linux(Debian variant ). I assume you have the downloaded file in your home folder.(say i have googlechrome.deb in ma home folder)
Now open up the terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and paste the following command and hit enter

dpkg  -i  googlechrome.deb

That's all you have finished. Now let us have a quick look on what we can do with dpkg
  • dpkg –remove: uninstalls  a package
  • dpkg –unpack: doesn't installs but just  unpacks the file
  • dpkg –configure: presents the available configuration options for the package
