You are searching for a file and wonder what package provides it

A typical example are .so files and .h files pointed out by configurewhen you install something from source. To find those file, you need to install apt-file then run apt-file update to build the database of files-packages associations. Once you do this you can apt-file search any file.

Installing a .deb package and its dependencies

use gdebi, apt-get won't help here.

Automatically install dependencies when compiling from source

auto-apt run ./configure

You have to run auto-apt update and auto-apt update-local first (cache and db generation).
