Hello; I just started using Linux Lite.
I like the application Dukto, but it doesn't seem
to be in the repositories.

Would it be safe to download the .deb file from
Dukto's website and install it via gdebi ?

If so, Dukto's website asks to choose a package for either
Debian 8.0 or Ubuntu 16.04, but it seems to be the
same file name under both headings, which is (dukto_6.0-1_amd64.deb)

If it's safe to download the .deb file and install it,
which one should I choose, the one for Debian 8.0 or
the one for Ubuntu 16.04, or does it make any difference
since the filename is the same ?

And if it's taking a risk to install the .deb file,
is there any other way to install Dukto in Linux Lite ?

This package will not even run on Debian 9 anymore because of OS networking security changes, and as far as I know never worked right on Debian 8 without over writing some system security. I do not recommend it for anything. It's neither a secure syncing application, nor a secure file sharing application. It's like opening a side door to your system, a lot like  some of the old camera software. Cross platform file sharing is easy these days, and can be made quite secure. Spend your time and effort on Samba or SFTP.

I'm surprised to hear that.
Dukto runs just fine on MX Linux 18 which is based on Debian 9 stable,
and it runs just fine on Peppermint 9 which is based on Ubuntu.
