Guake is a fancy Quake-like terminal which lets you access it by using a hotkey (user-customizable). Unobtrusive, Guake slides down from the top of the screen, and can be used while running other desktop applications, providing you with a quick access to the console.
There are times when you need to install an application that is only available in *.rpm package in Debian GNU/Linux or Ubuntu operating system. One of the main obstacles is that Debian / Ubuntu are using *.deb based packaging system which is incompatible with RPM.
However you can easily convert RPM package to *.deb and install it afterwards, here’s how to do it :
Install alien, its available in Debian, Ubuntu repository
Convert rpm package using command “sudo alien -k some-binary-package.rpm”
Install it using this command “sudo dpkg -i some-binary-package.deb
That’s all about it! Have fun installing application in your application.
