    Help me with APTonCD. can't restore the packages

    I hav installed so many packages through online. and I used APTonCD to backup those packages. but now can't restore them. when click the load button in Restore window of APTonCD it throws errors into the console[http://www.pasteall.org/pic/show.php?id=31246].



    is there any way to add the backuped packages back to var/apt/cache and make ubuntu that the packages are there in. Last time APTonCD worked for me on Karmic Koala(9.10)

    Internet speed is very slow here. I can't download all again. help me out.

    I have no idea how aptoncd works but if you can see the .deb packages on the cd you can simply copy them to /etc/var/cache/archive as root and then change the permissions to 644 or -rw-r--r--

    In a terminal go to the root of the cd and post the output of ls -R here in code tags or post it on http://paste.ubuntu.com/ and provide a link. I want to see the folder structure & contents of the cd/dvd.

    Nice quick fix, but does not correct the APTonCD error of not loading an ISO or reading the APTonCD CD in the DVD drive.

    So if anybody knows of a fix. Please post it. -- If no fix APTonCD need to be repaired and the repositories replace with the repaired program.

    And as usual nobody in Ubuntu main who develops the programing; ever loads or sets up to load into Ubuntu dpkg-dev. always have to load it so I don't get errors in apt-get...

    So.. all of the packages for APTonCD are in the archive directory,
    sudo apt-get source aptoncd --- processes correctly
    sudo apt-get update --- processes correctly
    sudo apt-get install aptoncd -- processes correctly no new files to be installed.
    Since I remove 11.10 and restored 10.04 I can not speak if APTonCD worked in 11.10 or not, but it does in 10.04

    Tried to load a ISO Load button does nothing...
