I can't force both synaptic package manager and ubuntu software center to ignore my lack of internet connection and install from cd. I know there is "wicd" because it works on live (same cd I have on deck during install tries), I disabled all the network repositories in preferences leaving only cd-rom as package source but both synaptic and ubuntu software center give me "can't fetch data from http://...." even all network sources are disabled.

Cd is in deck, mounted and browsable, checked it. I tried to run dpkg from recovery mode and damn thing is also trying to install from internet.

How do I install wicd having only ubuntu cd install?

Never did this, but looks possible (and maybe even painful)

Yeah I can google, most of these topics end up with either cable connection or not working solution. Just can't understand why such basic thing like installing soft from cd is made so hard, I'm just hoping I miss some simple step and it is as easy as it supposed to be.

It is easy when your using a cd made for installing software packages to your computer. You have a .iso that made to install a system and not a package.
