but when i try to install the main package it say these dependencies are missing..
there are more than 40-50 packages so its not possible to install manully first one package and then another..

Navigate to the folder containing all the .debs and run
sudo dpkg -i *.deband the system will work out the installation for you without throwing any dependency errors, as it will know the dependency packages are already marked for install.

Make sure you have only the .deb packages you want to install in the folder, or you may get error messages about other installation and re-installation problems.
