Then press Ctrl+Alt+T to open terminal.

Open Terminal to run commands

Run below command to install the package:

sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/downverter*.deb

That’s it. The installed executable script is /opt/downverter/Downverter. But Ubuntu keeps looking for /opt/downverter/downverter when you open Downverter from Unity Dash. To fix this problem, run below commands to rename it:

sudo mv /opt/downverter/Downverter /opt/downverter/downverter

Then give executable permission:

sudo chmod +x /opt/downverter/downverter
