    Question Download apps once install many times

    Hi
    Is there a way to download an app once then put it on a usb drive and transport it to other ubuntu installations. I have to pay for every mb of internet I use so I am not fond of the idea of downloading an app more than once.

    Thanks

    The downloaded installers are in /var/cache/apt/archives . Simply copy the .deb files you want to install to the other machines, and open them with Ubuntu Software Center to install them (not really recommended, since USC is really slow), or run this command in the terminal to install all the .deb files (make sure you're in the same directory):
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i *.deb
    NOTE: Make sure you collect all the necessary packages, or some dependencies may not be satisfied.

    Huh?

    You can install AptonCD, it's in the software center.
    It'll let you either burn your packages to a cd/dvd, or let you create an .iso image which you can load onto a pendrive.
