Make apt-rdepends print apt-get readable output Ubuntu.

I have some software I want to put on a cd with a few shell scrips as installers but the only tool that can find ALL the dependincys is apt-rdepends and it takes forever to delete the (>= 1.0) nonsense ( as in I don't care right now). Is there a program or tag I can use to do this. The software is already installed on my system and it holds some long and painfull data. I also can't promise that the user will have the same flavor (Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, all come with different base files/libs, KDE, GNOME, etc.) so I want all the dependincys. Help?

You can always use the "sed" command to delete anything from >= to the end of the line - for every line. Then it won't take more than a few seconds.

Next, why are you specifically installing dependencies? You cou do this:

apt-get -y install package1 package2 package3
apt-get -y -f install
