For executing the postinstall script of a deb package you have to use "debbi" delivered by rcrsn51 for installing Brother printers' drivers. I do not know if the postinstall script of a deb package is generally compatible with puppy. I think not.

No nothing about that program.
All newer or newest Puppy versions handle deb packages basically the way they handle pet packages.
Left click on the deb package and it installs.
Only thing, it may not do anything about adding any required dependency files, that are not already in Puppy.
May or may not make menu entries.
Really depends on what is provided by the deb package.
After installing a deb, how do you find what /etc folder files it installed?
Look in /root/.packages (Hidden directory)
All installed packages make a text file that lists the files that are installed by that package.
So look for the named file of what you installed.
Also, in Puppy Package Manager>uninstall.
The deb package you installed should be listed.
You can uninstall it from here. _________________ I have found, in trying to help people, that the things they do not tell you, are usually the clue to solving the problem.
