dpkg is used to install packages that you downloaded manually as opposed the
automated process of using apt-get or synaptic. It also has uses for manually or
automatically configuring packages during or after installation. The
-i switch means
"install". 'man dpkg' or 'dpkg --help' will explain the other uses of dpkg.

Getting all the libraries installed manually is tedious, but dpkg will
tell you what the
missing dependencies are and install the 'broken' package anyway.
You'll be forced to
remove and re-install it in the course of fixing the dependencies.
