install "gdebi' ?

You mean in the same way that:
Code: Select all
apt-get install virtualbox

would install VirtualBox?

You'd think wouldn't you. But let's start with VirtualBox as per thread title.

Your welcome, and congratulations,....

It takes some time to learn about linux, and Debian, but the more you practice, and also
read, the easier it gets. However it is a never ending process, we all keep learning new
things.

I still remember thrashing around trying to get Broadcom wi-fi working on my first Linux install in 2006, so don't think you're alone. We all have to start somewhere.

Over on MX Linux, several of our developers have written a very nice, start from the basics user manual that's included with the ISO--so now we can bang our heads on the wall whenever a new user asks us a question that's answered on the first page of the manual. :lol:
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: AzPainter 2.1.0, Pale Moon 27.4.2, Liquorix kernel 4.12-6, mpv 0.26.0, Kodi 17.3, 0ad 0.0.22, Mesa 13.0.6

Yes, we've all been there. And once you "get it", you'll want to do more. It's almost infectious.
