Something that's not always clear (for newbies) is that you have to
issue that "dpkg -i" command from within the directory containing the
target .deb file after it's downloaded. That directory can be almost
anywhere (if not actually anywhere), but the command has to be issued
from wherever that .deb landed in the file hierarchy.
