Question How to down to UBUNTU without internet service

I have a blackberry that I would like to use as a modem with Ubuntu 11.04. My computer is set up with both Ubuntu and Windows and I have down loaded the Barry packages and Berry4all tgz package through windows to transfer to the Linux OS. I can get the packages to show up in the file manager but not to the synaptic package manager or the software extraction program. Either one tells me that I need an internet connection to download these to be opened and installed. Can anyone tell me how to get around this? I won't be able to get an internet connection until I can get the software installed.
Thanks in advance.

I just checked and it seems that what you downloaded just contains python scripts. So, you just need to unpack it. From the looking at the downloads page it looks like the file you have is probably: bbtether-0.3q.tgz
The instructions on says to

Download Berry4All:
and extract it wherever you want Ex: your home dir).
It seems you are stuck at "extract it wherever you want".
Try something like the following in a terminal:
tar xzf bbtether-0.3q.tgz
The above assumes you have cd'd to the directory where you placed the file.

After that continue to follow the instructions on and post back if you run into trouble again.
