TIP FOR ALL USERS TO INSTALL OFFLINE.ALTERNATIVE TO APTONCD.ESPECIALLY IF COMPUTER HAS NEVER BEEN ONLINE (like mine) so no chance of 'apt-get update'
(0)for 'dpkg-scanpackages' get debian files libtime*,patch*,dpkg-dev* files from iso & do 'dpkg -i' on all three one by one.
(1)Whenever I want to install a software on standalone computer then I get required debian files (if you also want to know link of debian files so that you can 'wget' them then see TIP at the end )
& copy them to /root/debs
(2)I comment all lines in /etc/apt/sources.list and add
deb file:/root debs/
#cd /root;dpkg-scanpackages debs /dev/null | gzip > debs/Packages.gz;apt-get update >/dev/null
(4)#apt-get install softwareName
(1)i got debian ffmpeg files from medibuntu and .deb file for gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg,gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly,gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad,build-essential
NOTE:-In conflict of common files between gstreamer & medibuntu.The later prevails.
(2)Now i install ffmpeg,gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg,gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly,gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad so that
I get all audio video files playing (by default in totem) and ffmpeg can transcode to all formats(that is why medibuntu was preferred).
I get packages.gz and sources.gz from http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/<your distroname>/<main,multiverse,restricted,universe>/<binary-i386,source>
and store them in folders main,multiverse,restricted,universe in /root then add required lines to /etc/apt/sources.list. Thus a computer can install softwares without smelling internet ever.
