can't find APTonCD for backing up downloaded APT package


Hello everyone...
I've downloaded and installed ATP for Ubuntu 11.4 on an internet enabled computer. Now i want to use it on a computer which has no way to connect to internet. How am i going to do that.

I was searching google to see if it knew anything about this ... and it turns out the answer was under your nose the whole time:

Linuxquestions.org Apt-get offline

I think as long as you can copy it to a DVD, You can use the drive as a source for your repository and be fine.



Hope this pertains to you and sheds some light on your situation. Good luck.

In case you may be interested, there is also Keryx to perform offline updates for Debian based distros, including Ubuntu: http://keryxproject.org/

some of the packages i've downloaded on this internet enabled computer and changed them to .DEB format. Now that i am trying to install those packages on this other computer (not connected to internet) the message is showing that "aptdeamon has encountred a probem and can't install this software". I checked all of the packages on it but it is giving this message on each of the packages.

Do i have to uninstall and reinstall it. IF yes how to do that.

A Million Thanks to you in advance Partner.

I have never actually used APTonCD or Keryx, since both of my computers are connected to the internet. So I am not sure how to advise you on this.
I would suggest reading through the Keryx documentation: http://keryxproject.org/tutorial/

If APTonCD works better for you, then I would use that. I mentioned Keryx as an alternative since I have read on the Ubuntu forums that it works well.

Keryx downloads only updates from the internet so that you can install them on you offline computer. My question is that how to use already installed and updated packages from internet enabled computer to an offline computer.

2nd question is that is APT is the only where all of the downloaded packages are located or is there any folder also.
