    Each program is different. Best bet is to read the readme/install file & check the web site you got it from.

    when i tried to install skype, i got a .deb file too.
    i read and found out that there is a packet manager called "gdebi".

    so i made:

    apt-get install gdebi

    after installation, you can doubleclick on the .deb and its installing.
