My problem was that in ESbox it's point-and-click and I don't know what it
does under the hood.

This is what I was missing. :)

I installed them manually but this is even easier, thanks.

Maybe one more question:

After I built the package and installed it using eg. dpkg -i
libhildon1_2.3.0-1~unreleased_i368.deb, is there a simple way to downgrade
to the original package from repository? I know I can find the current
repository version and then install it using apt-get install
package-name=version. Can I do it using a single command?
