The first time you install it, with synaptic, you have to have the
comments (or whatever the heck it's called) window open when it gets to
the point of installing files. That's when the license announce comes
up. Tricky bit, too. It's easy to mess up, but just try again, that's
free. Or, since you already have the file in /var/cache/apt/archives
apt-get install packagename should do the trick, too. $:) Ric
