you can build the software from the source, or you can install rpm and alien. Then type 'sudo alien -d your-rpmpackage.rpm'
Would try to build package from source if you can.

You want .deb packages. Ubuntu is a Debian derivative. Only if Debian packages aren't available should you use other package methods.

Can you help with this problem?
