    Install VLC Player From Local Directory

    Okay before I installed VLC player and then I copied all the DEBs out of /var/cache/apt/arcives

    This was before my hard drive failed.

    I am on my new system and when I click the package it says something about a dependency. I install that and it just keeps going.

    Is there a simple way I can install VLC player (or any program) and it's dependencies from a local folder.

    I am going insane trying to install this one program.

    I think this might do it:
    http://kubuntuforums.net/forums/inde...opic=3087550.0

    I have the files ready and will try the next time I need to install it...

    but what would the -f option do?
