    Angry Installing Software Offline

    Hi I have an offline Ubuntu 10.10 install at another house, i cannot bring it to this house to install the software I need.

    I would like to install a program which can convert a CD to MP3 files.

    Can anyone tell me how i cant get this software onto a USB and then how i can install it when I take it to the other computer?

    Thanks a lot

    EDIT: The computer with internet acccess is Windows 7 not Ubuntu!

    Hi! I think you could do that whit rhythmbox (pre-installed) if I'm wrong you should try sound juicer, if you don't have internet on the ubuntu pc you have to download the .deb package and pass it on the ubuntu pc whit an USB key.. If this program tell you that can't do this maybe you must install ubuntu-restricted-extras (sure download the .deb file and pass it whit USB).
    Cheers!

    Take a look at whether APTonCD would suit your needs:
    http://aptoncd.sourceforge.net/

    It is available via the Ubuntu Software Center.

    Hit Alt + F2 on your machine with internet and enter the following and hit enter:

    gksudo nautilus /var/cache/apt/archives/
    The filemanager that opens with have sudo permissions so be careful! However, delete all the files within this directory.

    In terminal do:

    sudo apt-get -d install sound-juicer gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly
    This won't install anything on your system but it will download the packages required. In the nautilus window you will see the debs appear for sound juicer and the gstreamer ugly codecs. This is what you will copy to your removable media and transfer them to the computer without internet access.

    Once done close the nautilus window which has sudo permissions.
