Archive Manager is not the right tool to install .deb files.

I'm assuming the downloaded .deb file is somewhere on your desktop?
If you right-mouse-click on the .deb file, what options are you given?

For example, on my Ubuntu desktop, right-mouse-clicking on the .deb
gives me the option "Open With GDebi Package Installer".

Thanks  - it was in my own Downloads folder in a special partition but 
the same option was offered and it was duly installed, as now shown in 

Now I have added 2 new children (twins) to one of my grandsons - I added 
an event - birth - to each. After editing both to get them the same, and 
sharing, I had 3 events with identical details (including ID) in one, 
two in the other. How did that happen? I have removed the superfluous 

"Place" is Sundsvall, Sweden and "Description" is Twin birth, Neonatal 
Unit. Is that appropriate?

With many thanks, 
  Yours sincerely, -

The way I shared the birth events for twins in my family is
- Created an entry for the first twin
- enter the details for the birth event (on some I had information such as which twin was born first etc) so I added this in a note on the birth event.
- open the clipboard, and drag and drop the birth event to the clipboard.
- create an entry for the second twin, and drag and drop the birth event from the clipboard to the events tab of the second twin.

Hope this helps.
