gdebi appears not to be installed in your OS by default. The "universe" section may need to be enabled in your /etc/apt/sources.list for it to become available in software listing (this wasn't necessary on live-cd).
Try "sudo apt-get update" before following steps in that topic.

Add the Getdeb repo and you'll be able to install it from Software Center.
