Thanks knudlf,

I already found this:
http://www.linuxmint.com/download.php

But I am not sure whether this contains softwares or some language packs like here : http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...tu-dvd-832238/

That's why I didn't download it !

Does your DVD link and mine contain the same softwares ?

Yes, I know that one too. Not much software, not what you want.

I'd guess, you will get into troubles, if you use an Ubuntu repo.

The DVDs in post # 6 is the real thing.

Just run : sudo apt-cdrom add
... when the disc has been inserted : You have your repo !

P.S. : With 8 DVDs, you will get all language packs, all languages
for everything, for all applications, requiring it, etc.

Thank you, but they come with a price ! It will be better for me if I try and follow your other method of creating repos, which you showed in that thread. Thanks again !
