ARRGH, it wants to install a f**king ancient version of JACK:

$ sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/aqualung_0.170.0-1_i386.deb 
Selecting previously deselected package aqualung.
(Reading database ... 116266 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking aqualung (from .../aqualung_0.170.0-1_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of aqualung:
 aqualung depends on libjack0.80.0-0 (>= 0.99.0); however:
  Package libjack0.80.0-0 is not installed.
dpkg: error processing aqualung (--install):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:

Which isn't even f**king available in the Ubuntu repositories!

$ sudo apt-get install libjack0.80.0-0
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Package libjack0.80.0-0 is not available, but is referred to by another
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package libjack0.80.0-0 has no installation candidate

GRR!  I guess this is why people run Gentoo :-P
