Install programs from synaptic offline


I have a laptop on a wireless network in a apartment building, but the server is in the manager's office, the signal is real good. I also have a desktop with no wireless or wired connection. My question is how do I transfer my apps from my laptop to my desktop in offline mode?

I don't want to install a wireless card for my desktop. Is there a way to install synaptic while offline? Or is there a way to install these apps from a flash drive to my desktop, if so how would I do that? Remember people I'm a newbie in linux.

Thanks in advance

If u have installed the apps thru synaptic in ur laptop . then there is a chance dat u can find the .deb packages of the applications u like to install on ur laptops apt-cache folder so u can jus go to /var/cache/apt/....( i dont remember the exact location after cache .. but u can find the .deb packages there so u copy them in admin mode and den get them on to ur desktop ini a folder and use the command dpkg -i *.deb

Heyy I just found out the directory of Yum in cache the path is /var/cache/yum/.... so see for the packages in that directory there in that directory I observed two directories headers & packages .so u can just have a look into packages folder


same as my first reply keep the packages in a folder and run the command in that folder

"yum install <package/app name>"
or
"rpm -ivh <package.rpm>"
regards
