    Have you run the command from the folder containing the .deb package ?

    Either move to the folder and run the command or use the full path to the file.

    You have marked this as solved, so I guess you are sorted, but if not, your download is probably in the Download folder (the default download folder in Firefox).

    In the terminal window type

    Code:
    cd ~/Downloads
    Then run your installation command.
