    I just downloaded opensong_2.1.1-1_i386.deb and tried to install it in Debian Linux. This is a netinstall, so I may be missing something that's needed. This is the error produced by the dpkg command:
    Unpacking opensong (2.1) ...
    Setting up opensong (2.1) ...
    /var/lib/dpkg/info/opensong.postinst: 2: /var/lib/dpkg/info/opensong.postinst: update-desktop-database: not found

    % dpkg -S =update-desktop-database
    desktop-file-utils: /usr/bin/update-desktop-database

    So install desktop-file-utils, and you'll have the missing command.

    Thanks, that did the trick.
