Alien can do it, its commandline but it works.

I use alien for doing rpm to deb.
You can install it via synaptic.
You could better read the manual of alien by running
man alien at the terminal.

alien is available as a package (apt:alien) in the ubuntu repos. after you install it, you run it from the terminal:

alien -k appname.rpm

actually in ubuntu its sudo alien appname.rpm, there is no real extra configuration rules to worry about as by default alien converts rpms into debs.
