Hi,
I have just jailbroken my kindle thanks to the wonderful guys at mobilereads.
Anyway, I installed kterm as an extension for KUAL and want to install a full modern browser like firefox or chrome(ium) or such. Kterm has support for the depkg command to install .deb files but I am not sure how to install all those dependency trees and libraries and such and then how I could then install the .deb file.
Is it just like ubuntu? Or is it much more complicated? Please help me if you can.
By the way I am using kindle oasis 3 32 gb so RAM and storage is sufficient for a low end device

Oh and also there is a guide to run such browser but it involves dual-booting and it will break other apps (extensions)on the kindle.

Welcome to XDA,
You might give a deep search on your devices section.
Good luck
