1 - You should give more info about your system - see "Before you post please read how to get help" in the text right above the post: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=83444

2 - Normally you should install software from the repositories using the "Software manager", or synaptic or cmd-line "apt-get" - unless there are good reasons not to, which there usually aren't.

So ignore the .deb file and try this:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install kate
