install a local .deb file

You can install a local .deb file (one you downloaded or built on your own system) by doing

sudo dpkg -i filename.deb

or by install gdebi and doing

sudo gdebi filename.deb

This way your dependencies are handled and all is well

gdebi

To see what packages you installed manually go to your synaptic package manager and click on status “installed local or obsolete”
