    Installing softwares widout internet.

    Most of my friends donot hav an internet connection.
    Even they use ubuntu. I hav to manually download all the dependencies for a particular software and giv them , which is really painful.

    Is there any easy alternative for manual installation widout internet(something like single click install) ??

    Not really. You can download packages from http://packages.ubuntu.com but obviously you have to download the dependencies too. I think you can order a DVD from canonical that has a lot more packages available than the CD.

    This page might help you install applications without internet connection.
    Steady movement is more important than speed, much of the time. So long as there is a regular progression of Stimuli to get your mental hooks into, there is room for lateral movement. Once this begins, its rate is a matter of discretion.

    If you are thinking of a one click install like the ones for some Windows programs then unfortunately non exists in Linux that works without a net connection.

    One solution to your problem would be to get an Ubuntu DVD or a DVD for the likes of Mandriva, openSUSE, Debian and Fedora which are shipped with lots of packages (especially the Debian DVDs), so you rarely need a net connection to install packages.

    Thanku everyone , apt-on cd is really an useful app.

    This website sells entire ubuntu repos on dvds , but this service is available only in India.
