Convert rpm packages to deb
DEB packages are the installers for Debian and Ubuntu like RPM for Linux, if we need to install one RPM on Ubuntu/Debian we need to convert as DEB package.
Converting of RPM to DEB is simple one step process with “alien” command in Ubuntu/Debain, for this one first we need to install alien.
Install alien command on Debian / Ubuntu
To install alien package you need root privilege. # apt-get install alien
Once the alien package is installed we can start the converting of RPM to DEB
# alien your-RPM-to-convert.rpm your-RPM-to-convert.deb generated
Now the .deb package is created, now you can install it in Ubuntu/Debain.
