I'm going around in circles with this. Been googling for ages but can't seem to find a solution.

I have an iso image created by aptoncd of my installed packages but I don't have a cd writer to create a cd from it. I know that if I could burn to a cd then I could go into Synaptic package manager and select the cd as the source to install from, via the origin button. But I can't.

Therefore, in the restore part of aptoncd I selected restore from iso which very nicely places all the packages in /var/cache/apt/archives but doesn't install them to my system. How do I get them to install??
