DESCRIPTION

       This  type  is  used  on  Debian  and  variants (like Ubuntu) to install packages that are
       provided locally as *.deb files.

       The object given to this type must be the name of the deb package.  The  filename  of  the
       deb      package     has     to     follow     Debian     naming     conventions,     i.e.
       ${binary:Package}_${Version}_${Architecture}.deb (see dpkg-query(1) for details).

OPTIONAL PARAMETERS

       state  present or absent, defaults to present.

REQUIRED PARAMETERS

       source path to the *.deb package

BOOLEAN PARAMETERS

       purge-if-absent
              If this parameter is given when state is absent, the package  is  purged  from  the
              system (using --purge).

              Returns the full package name if package is installed, empty otherwise.
