Audacity (ppa) installation from a flash drive ?

As an XP user in the process of becoming a LinuxMint convert, and not having any home internet service to use, I'm trying to get info on being able to install the Audacity ppa into the Linux system from a flash drive.The only You Tube tutorials that I've found use the internet as part of the process. I use the local library computer for all of my download needs, transferring to my home PC via flashdrive.I do find the command terminal 'language' a bit intimidating, but I'm determined to 'nail it down' eventually. If it is possible to do this, any'how to'info would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to LQ.

? Which (Mint?) OS is it you want to install ``audacity`` into ?
Please show the outputs from these two commands :
a) uname -m 
b) cat /etc/issue

Audacity has some (many) dependencies you will have to download too :
libc6, libexpat1, libgcc1, libglib2.0-0, libgtk2.0-0 you already have.
What you need, is an audacity version that requires some available sound-codecs etc.
( A random ppa version may not be the right choice.)

Thanx for the info. It looks like trying to pull off audacity installatin from a flash drive for someone that is just not familiar enough with the linux system and its navigation,would be very difficult if not impossible. Im thinking about a different approach now - Audacity 'Portable' (that is installed into the flash drive itself) and simply using Linux as a launching platform (it works great using XP) so if that would work, i I guess it would then be a matter of knowing how to access the flash drive in linuxMint and launch it.
