add Apps to computers without Internet
 
Hello,

Forgive me if this was covered in an earlier post. I scanned the archives but only found some complications in Bolivia for those without Internet.

I'm looking to download Apps on one machine, copy them to a flash drive and take them to community centers all across my city.

I didn't find the Apps on the File System and I'm unsure that I would be able to install copies of them if I did. Any solutions? Or will I be forced to bring each machine back to the main office when I want new educational games for the participants.

Thank you,

No - just download the .deb files for the applications you want, then
copy those to your flash drive. On the target machine, open a terminal,
and run the following command...

sudo dpkg -i /path/to/flash/drive/programname.deb

If you have multiple packages that have to be installed (dependencies,
etc.), you can list more than one .deb file on the command.

Hi Justin,

*
If you want to do this on cd or dvd, use aptoncd which is in the repositories.

*


aptoncd

*
Installation disc creator for packages downloaded via APT

APT removable repository creator and package backup tool for Debian based

systems.

*
This tool will allow you to create a media (CD or DVD) to use to install

software via APT in a non-connected machine, as well upgrade and install

the same set of softwares in several machines with no need to re-download

the packages again.

*
For more information, visit http://aptoncd.sourceforge.net

William

hello justin,

I have the same problem. but I had a machine with good internet
access. so I created a mirror: I downloaded about 20GB of data from a
site and put it on an external disk I had. it contains all packages
from main, restricted, universe and multiverse repositories. then I
added following line to my /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb file:///media/edisk2/transfer/mirror/ gutsy main restricted
universe multiverse

now I can install almost any program on all clients without having to
go to the internet.

I have a good description of how to do this in details, but it is only
in german. but there is a lot of information on the net.

rgds,

uwe
