Question about the package chm2pdf


Hi

I wanted to install this package to convert one Unix book into pdf. Since I have not set up the internet in the debian, I download the .deb files in winxp and transfer these files to my pen drive and then access it in the Debian. So I got all the 'depends' packages
for the chm2pdf from the Debian Packages site and tried to install. Console was still asking for more dependencies.

If I have got all the 'depends' packages which are required for chm2pdf, then why does it give problems ?

thanks

Did you installed the dependencies before installing chm2pdf?

Kind regards

May be because dependencies have their own dependencies too? apt-rdepends will show you all the dependencies of chm2pdf, and dependencies of dependencies, and so on.

And may be it will be much more clever solution, to setup internet connection on debian machine?

Thank You people. I will check that apt-rdepends. I am in the process of installing net connection.
