Read this : 2 easy steps for installing .deb 1. You will need only 1 thing, and it's called iFile ( click to Download ) 2. Open your .deb in iFile and click to install it. Reboot/Respring, Done another way.. is to use Mobile Terminal Download MobileTerminal in Cydia. Put your .deb file in /tmp using iFile 1) Start MobileTerminal 2) enter: su 3) enter: alpine (default pass) 4) dpkg -i /tmp/NameOfTheFile.deb 5) delete the deb file 6) reboot/respring

Ya that's what I do... however I like the idea of AutoInstall... beside when u do the "dpkg -i crap.deb" usualy crap.dep disapears afterworth... hence my 2 questions, where do they go? where can I store them safley in order to copy them / send them later may be many time over?? and second question, How should I set the permissions on this Cydia folder and Autoinstall folders???

in windows winscp theres a terminal. just dpkg -i filename.deb. and then reboot. cant se that on the mac version tho.

Euh? Yes you can... it's called open console. It's under secure ftp. If you care to run the debian package manager yourself instead of having Cydia do the job for you, sure it works fine. Just the default fonts sucks big time.

The title should say (Mac) as Fugu is not windows software.

Hey, you can use winscp on a windows comp. Just like Fugu.

deb files are sort of like .app but for cydia, or just think of the ad a compressed file. also wanted to add that you can do this over and file transfer program it doesnt have to be ssh. And you can find most deb files here :)

Dude... Thanks for the link. it's bit outdated but very very useful... thanks again... if u have any more of these please. I download all these deps, and sources on my PC as a backup when i need to reinstall when an experiment goes wrong. That is very helpful

.app? Hummm well, they are Debian packages... like RedHat's RPM or MacOS's pkg files. Yeah, it's like a TAR compressed file but I guess for windows people it's more like a cabinet (.cab) file. APP files are self contained and uncompressed. Not to be pedantic, but I thought it was confusing the way it was said. Anyway, search for debian packages if you care ...

For the amount of work, it's easier just to use AppCake...
