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

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