store apps locally, reload favorite apps on another distro


Q1> is there a good brief tutorial (less than 15 min) showing how to store a Linux app on a local hard drive,
and then install such locally stored apps on another distro from local hard-drive?

Q2> is there a Linux app which does the above, with simple GUI controls?

Hello and welcome to LQ.

Q1
Usually the Debian/Ubuntu/Mint way is to set up a local apt repository. Search for those terms.

One of the newer ways of making programs is to use a universal type program. The idea is good but not a lot of energy behind it yet.

Q2

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Personal claims a possible solution maybe.

deb-mirror will make a local repository from all files downloaded using apt-get, synaptic, etc., so youonly need to download them once. After that they can be retrieved from the disk cache in /var/cache/apt/archives.

thanks ... I will look into those

okay, today I registered at LQ.org and already have useful suggestions which I can understand...
previously other Linux and Wine forums have sounded like a foreign language to me.
