What do you mean? You can install .deb files from the internet with gdebi or dpkg. If you do it with gdebi, it will solve all dependencies for you, if the app is at all compatible with Debian.

^ +1
...or at least it will tell you what additional dependencies you need to get from *buntuland (usually a library of two).

Yes. I should have been more accurate. That scenario goes under the category not fully compatible with Debian. And it`s not only in "buntuland" you need to get packages. I`ve had to visit squeeze a few times. The nice thing is that gdebi tells you the package you are missing, so you can google it, download it and install it with gdebi or dpkg, instead of adding ubuntu-repos or old debian repos.

My debian life got a lot easier when I discovered this page:  http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages#search_packages

Re: could do with crunchbang app store

@samZ0rp:  Many applications - both GUI and CLI - have different directory structures.  Have you noticed that some man pages will say that the program's main config file could be in (for example) in /etc, /etc/{application_name}, /ust/share/{application_name}, and so forth?  It seems Canonical's developers deliberately place their config files in a different location than Debian just to say "This! Isn't! Debian!" roll  This is one of the many differences between Debian and Ubuntu that can cause trouble, even if dependencies are all met.

Re: could do with crunchbang app store

I understand The OP's interest in an "app store".
In a new to linux situation a software center is very useful. Heck I remember being lost when looking for specific programs among the vast amount of available programs.

Not to mention that the new generation of linux users will be from the app this.. app that generation.
At some point the terminology will change.. linux will be an app world as well   smile

Who says that we have to bend over for the lazy and brainless app-generation. We even hate the word app. If anyone are into apps, I would seriously encourage them to leave, A.S.A.P devil  Either we have to win the app-lovers over to our side, or they may just as well sail into the sunset with MS, Google and Mac. Grrrrrr mad mad mad 1...2....3... 4......10....

We only want geeks in here glasses   Am i Kidding? Well, it`s anyones guess, and I`m not gonna answer it smile

What color is OS X? big_smile

Personally I feel that Linux Mint is grey. In all senses of the word. The most dull distro in the world. Unity makes Ubuntu something unique. Can`t be compared to anything else. The GUI is actually awesome. The problem is many of the lenses, but that`s easily solved:

sudo apt-get autoremove unity-lens-music unity-lens-photos unity-lens-gwibber unity-lens-shopping unity-lens-video
