In ubuntu to install a software package through terminal we use following command:

sudo apt-get install <package_name>

but I want to save the package, so that I can reinstall it later.

please help me...

All the .deb files downloaded with apt-get are kept in /var/cache/apt/archives/ until you do an "apt-get clean"

Cheers,

PS. Another useful thing is dpkg-repack which can remake the deb file from the installed files (including your changes to config files) on your system.
