    Pull individual files from Synaptic package?

    I need the lircd init script from the synaptic package because I forgot to install Lircd and then remove it before compiling a branch from source, but I can't find any way of pulling a package from synaptic and extracting a single file without installing it.

    lirc?
    download http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...ntu3_amd64.deb
    unpack it (available under right click)
    in case xubuntu can't unpack deb archives via gui, try dpkg -x
