Kubuntu Newbie Experience X - Installing deb files

You saw that nice looking game and now you downloaded it. You see that it has a deb suffix, like game.deb. What do you do with it? Well, you use your konsole and type:

sudo dpkg -i game.deb


In my case, I wanted to install the game I saw in Native Ubuntu Games, Epiar. So I downloaded a deb format file named epiar_0.5.0-1_i386.deb and it went on my Desktop. Browsing my desktop using Konsole, I typed

sudo dpkg -i epiar_0.5.0-1_i386.deb


and it installed okay. I was able to play the game but it is still in its infancy stage. There are a lot of things still missing like audio, an introduction, you know? game stuff! So I decided to uninstall it.

I uninstalled it by using Adept. I typed epiar on the search bar and clicked on Remove and Apply Changes.

Done.
