* Install alien, its available in Debian, Ubuntu repository
* Convert rpm package using command “sudo alien -k some-rpm-package.rpm”
* Install it using this command “sudo dpkg -i some-rpm-package.deb

This was from a query titled "installing rpm on ubuntu"

Now TheeMahn would never ever build an OS without those tools! Of course Ubuntu and some others most definitely will! Now what I used to do was simply open a terminal type sudo nautilus or nemo, go to the package right click properties put checkmark in allow executing as program. Close terminal, reopen drag/drop file in terminal after sudo entered again then click enter. Yes I know is on the crazy side, not severely rational but was simpler and of course was my first response after first using Linux. Still it does work and is quite quick! The way you state is a proper conversion to a deb and is greatly appreciated by those still learning along with the time you have spent to document it! Please do not stop as is great to continue having the most useful information on this forum! Best part of being here!!!!
