    Which apps are you after? Get a list then hunt down the .deb files.

    thanks for your replay

    I just want to know a way to know a general or major way to hunt .deb packages for any program already on the software center

    for example ...
    Adobe flash Player
    Multimedia Program codes

    http://au.yhs4.search.yahoo.com/yhs/...line%20install

    Just wondering, though. Flash Player is a browser plug in and as your Ubuntu machine is not online ...

    I don't know what 'Multimedia Program Codes' are, sorry. Do you mean codecs?

    Are you really using 9.04? It has been unsupported for nearly two years.

    There are other options: Could you install Ubuntu to a USB stick, boot from that, install the .debs you want to it then look in:

    /var/cache/apt/archives/

    Any old .debs should be in there I think ... someone correct me if I'm wrong. I would also suggest a wireless dongle for the Ubuntu machine but this would require a wireless router also. If you have a regular router, how far away is that? I use a 15 metre ethernet cable and I believe longer is possible. Could you put the router halfway?

    Of course, none of this may be possible, but just throwing in some ideas ...

    Thumbs down Re: Where Can I get a package offline ?

    Do you have Ubuntu One?

    What you want seems like kinda difficult.

    I'd suggest you to share the internet conexion from your Windows Computer to your Ubuntu machine, through ethernet, if you can get them close enough.

    Or I offer you a deal...

    If you don't have Ubuntu One, sign up using THIS link and I'm willing to upload all my debs(and the ones you request), after that you can download them in your Windows machine
    - Pass it to your Ubuntu Machine with a memory stick or Portable Hard Drive.
    - Once in your Ubuntu machine you install APTOnCD.
    - Using APTOnCD you can create an image with the packages you've downloaded, burn it to CD's or a DVD(I suggest a rewritable one, so you can reuse it in the future).
    - Then you can install whatever you want(available) using synaptic, as APTOnCD adds your APTOnCD as a sourcelist in synaptic.

    Thing is that for some packages like flash-plugin-installer and mscorefonts you need internet conexion, or use the method stated by Bucky Ball.

    Best Regards
