Convert Redhat packages (rpm) in Ubuntu

Some of my friend asked me, how they can install rpm files in ubuntu, they all tried alien but some times it failed

try this
sudo apt-get install alien debhelper build-essential dpkg-dev

after the installation you can use alien

sudo alien yourpackage.rpm

now it will make yourpackage.deb

Now you can install the deb using
sudo dpkg -i packagename.deb
