If it's in the repository, Synaptic should be able to see it.  If you 
know the name of the package, you should be able to look for it with 
Synaptic (though you might have to use the Search function to find it).

I turned on Synaptic, clicked on Reload, clicked on Search, typed in 
"gdebi" and up it came, marked as installed.  you could have done the same.

I'm ok with the fact that some guys use the CLI for everything but that 
doesn't mean I have to.  I only use it as a last resort.  I'm a GUI sort 
of geek cuz that's what works for me.  :)
