What is a Deb file?

A “Deb” file is a software package which has been compiled for the Linux Debian system.

However Deb files are not like “BASIC” programs you can just load in as you could on the Commodore 64, BBC Micro, Apple II, or Amiga A500.

A “Deb” file has to be created specially for the type of computer and version of the operating system.

Before downloading and trying to install “Deb” files, be sure they pertain your Computer and version of Linux.
