Re: Ask : Need help !
You should know that Linux, Ubuntu in particular, was designed to work online when installing apps. There are lots of dependencies among components and libraries -- which the installers attempt to resolve automatically when downloading stuff. IF you're offline, you are faced with resolving these, one at a time, by yourself. That is a nightmare you don't want to have to deal with.

Anything not listed, or rated less than Gold, is not going to work well enough in Ubuntu to be useful.
If your goal in combing to Ubuntu is to reuse your Windows apps, you're setting yourself up for major disappointment in the long run.
Ubuntu 12.10; Mint 15; MS Win7 & Win8.
