Are you trying to do this so you have an Ubuntu environment that you can
use to live-boot on customer's computers to repaier them, or are you
wanting to pull down some run-on-windows programs and just unzip them to
If the former, you could just get a USB stick, and put an ubuntu liveCD
on there with persistence set up. This tutorial here:
should help you get that set up. It is a bit dated, but I believe it's
As for the latter, i think your idea of writing a script to do that may
be the easiest option, since you know already what programs you want on
there... However, you may find some difficulty with this as the few
programs I use that could benefit from a script like this has their
release numbers in the url to download them... therefore you'd have to
add something in your script to recursively change the version numbers,
and try to download it that way...or find a mirror that doesn't use the
release number in the name.
Asanother alternative...a lot of these programs have some sort of
built-in update feature,that often rests as a seperate program someplace
in the program directory...you could always make a script to call that
program with wine, and update them like that...
Hope that helps
