Hello,
tar says your tar.gz and tgz files aren't tar files.

I tried to convert the rpm files to deb with alien, but it did
not work.

with regards,

    Are you sure that you're doing a tar xvzf xxx.tgz ?

    for the rpm, it works for me. I can install it. I didn't tried alien,
    because i'm not a debian user.
