What is a DEB file?
A DEB file is a standard Unix archive that contains two bzipped or gzipped archives, one for the installer control information and another for the actual data. DEB files are typically used for software installation packages.
DEB installer files are used by multiple versions of Linux including Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and PCLinuxOS.
