I am not exactly a Vector or Linux newbie, but I cannot find any documentation for this.  Is there a way to install a Debian package onto a Vector system (package manager?) and, if so, how?  Thanks.

I've been successful with converting debian packages in the past.
Not everything works, mind you.
Static apps are best. (Those that include all dependences internally)
None static apps often involve a lot on simbolic linking.

Here are some vids I did of some successfull ones but it will give you the idea.

Same principles for rpm packages...
