How to know the required packages of one package before installing, in Ubuntu?
I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed on my laptop.
And I am going to install mediaplayer from its "*.deb"
file, But it requires a lot of other packages and each
of those packages needs others and so on.
Since I do not have internet connection on my Ubuntu and
my internet connection is in Win XP, so I should download
these packages and then check them in my Ubuntu and see what
other packages it needs and download them and so on.
It is a very time consuming task. If I could find out what
are all the required packages I could download all of them
at once and then I could install them by "sudo dpkg -i *".
Therefore I am wondering if there is a way to know which
packages are the required ones for a typical package, my
work would be much more easier.
I would be so grateful if some one could help me.
With best regards,
