Wireshark .deb file installation process - No internet


Hey All,

Getting ready to install Wireshark on my Servers, but I have no internet, so I am going to download:

wireshark_1.0.7-1ubuntu1_i386.deb

from a Window's machine, throw it on a USB stick, and then boot up Ubuntu and put the stick in the drive.

Can anyone give me the commands to install a .deb file/application in Ubuntu from USB stick?

Code:
sudo dpkg -i wireshark_1.0.7-1ubuntu1_i386.deb
However, it is possible you need to download some dependencies

Don't forget you'll need to mount the usb stick to access the .deb file.

In general it is mounted automaticly.
If not, open a terminal, login as root and type:
Code:
tail -f /var/log/messages
plugin the usb stick
Look a the output in the terminal
You will see something like
Code:
Aug 17 18:11:03 cannabis kernel: [14768.945687]  sdc1
then as root
Code:
mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt
Code:
cd /mnt
ls
