i'm afraid you are missing the point - it is possible to install
the *RPM* packages into an arbitrary directory as non-root on a DEB-based
system, and the install script *only* works with RPM packages.
i do not know if it is possible to write a similar script for DEB packages,
nobody has tried it yet, you are welcome to give it a try.
