    • Example: gdebi /root/Downloads/lgtoclnt_9999_amd64.deb
  2. Use the program apt to install. Sometimes this program will not properly detect the dependencies needed for Networker client.
    • Must run as root user.
    • apt install <Path to Client File>
    • Example: apt install /root/Downloads/lgtoclnt_9999_amd64.deb
