I'm trying to install IBM Lotus Note 8.5.3 on Linux Mint 14 using terminal. Problem is that it's not installing and showing following error

sudo apt-get install ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586.deb
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586.deb
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586.deb'

I've install Lotus Note 8.5.3 on Ubuntu 12.04, without any problem. How can I solve this problem now on Linux Mint 14?

I think you need to use dpkg -i to install a .deb file that you have local.

$ dpkg -i ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586.deb

From the dpkg man page:

Usage: dpkg [<option> ...] <command>

  -i|--install       <.deb file name> ... | -R|--recursive <directory> ...
