Debian Packages

I’m finding the package manager on Debian/Gnome3 keeps failing to open .deb files I’ve downloaded (for example dropbox).

Leaving this as a note to myself to remember – but you can install them on the command line perfectly fine.

dpkg -i 
# If it fails due to dependencies
apt-get update
apt-get install -f
dpkg -i 

Since I’m using a nvidia laptop, I have to make sure suspend on lid close is off, because it always crashes on wakeup.
