Ubuntu All,

My new ubuntu 9.04 install is on a DEll desktop with no internet

Can I use my XP wireless laptop do download ubuntu codecs for mp3 and mpeg

and tranfer them to my Dell ubuntu desktop via flashdrive?

Yes you can
not very helpful ;)

if you have had your ubuntu pc connected to the internet and had package lists downloaded.
go to synaptic, select files to install,
go to file-->generate package download script,
then you can use the web addresses in that to down load packages, put thoses into /var/cache/apt/archives then go back to synaptic and install what was selected.

if you havent got the package lists, or you want to update it this tutorial is pretty straight forward (http://www.planetoss.com/detail.php?id=13)
