    Unhappy Installing wine offline

    I need to install wine through removable disk drive

    I got a dual boot Ubuntu 9.10
    I use an wireless motherboard-extension to get internet to my desktop because i can't get a long enough Ethernet cable
    The installation CD for it uses a .exe
    Wine isn't on my Ubuntu 9.10 so i can't unpack it
    On winehq.com the instructions require you to have internet connection

    on the other side of the dual boot, i have a windows machine with a an internet connection because windows can native-ly read .exe

    I need to get wine onto a CD in windows and transfer it to the other side of the disk partition

    Does it mean that you have internet working in Ubuntu?If yes,then under system<admin>software sources (or repositories) check all under ubuntu software (except source) and under updates tab check first two.Reload.Now you should be able to install wine from synaptic.If you really need to download wine from <windows side then go here and download all packages marked with red ball as a green and blue ones.After that scroll to the bottom of page and choose architecture and download wine.Put all packages into the folder and put folder on cd/usb.From there put that folder in your home directory in Ubuntu and go to the applications>accessories>terminal and type ( let say that you named folder with wine and its dependencies as folwin)

    Code:
    cd folwin
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i *deb
    There is no greater religion than a truth.

    Re: Installing wine offline

    To recap
    I have no Ubuntu internet, but i have windows internet
    I go [a href=http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/wine]here[/a]
    I click i386 (i am running Ubuntu on x86)
    Now i am here http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/wine
    i go to a mirror download wine and put the .deb file on a CD
    I go to Ubuntu and on terminal type the code
    right

    I got wine offline, but i recomend going out and getting an etherenet extender or a really long cable. Saving 10$ is not worth the kind of effort i put into that
    Theres no place like 127.0.0.1
