    Thank you for adding this tutorial, but I have encountered a problem.
    At this command $ sudo dpkg -i *.deb I get an error message :

    error processing *.deb (–install): cannot access archive: no such file or directory. Errors were encountered while processing *.deb

    I’ve tried typing the command a couple of times and get the same results.

    Thanks for your help.

    Thanks for the info.
    I’m a new user, but trying to learn the ropes.
    I went throught he steps, and saw activity in the command prompt without any error messages, but I don’t see the suite in my applications. Am I missing a step?

    • Geekster says:

      no, i think you did not miss any step. if you don’t get error messages, it means that everything went smoothly.
