Unpacking the Packages
In this step, you extract the Ubuntu packages on your Linux workstation in order to access their files:
- Open a terminal.
- Change to the directory where you saved the packages.
- Create a directory to extract the files to:
- Extract the packages to the new directory:
dpkg -x zoom*.deb zoom/
dpkg -x libx*.deb zoom/
- Run the following command to see how much space the package contents need in total (in MB):
du -cms zoom/*
The total is 151 MB (your package may differ slightly). To be on the safe side, let's memorize that we need approximately 500 MB of storage space for the Custom Partition contents.
