I come across some closed source software that only provides .deb packages. Fedora manages packages with rpm/yum. How to install the .deb packages on Fedora?
In latest Fedora, the tool alien is in Fedora’s repository. You can use dnf to install the package.
In earlier Fedora version, you may download and install it from the source code.
To download and install alien:
First download one package for alien from Debian FTP:
To convert a .deb package to a .rpm package:
$ alien -r package.deb
To install the converted rpm package:
$ sudo yum localinstall package.rpm
