Thanks. I downloaded the .deb file. But now I can't seem to get it 
installed on my Ubuntu-64 Breezy. I put it in /home/jjj/Desktop and 
then did "sudo apt-get install /home/jjj/Desktop/tipa_1-1.2-
2_all.deb." This resulted in:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package

I double- and triple-checked that I typed the filename correctly. 
Does anyone know what I did wrong? And while I'm asking 
questions, why do Linux dudes insist on making filenames that are 
impossible to type correctly? :)
