Oh, well, what you need to do is:

  sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list

  Add this line to your sources.list, there will be a bunch of similar ones
  for our archives:

    deb http://www.getsweaaa.com/~tseng/ubuntu/debs ./

  sudo apt-get update

  sudo apt-get install muine (or other package names)

There you go! :-)

(for what it's worth, and you won't have to use this very often, but the
equivalent of your rpm command is dpkg -i *.deb)
