Hey all,

All the AptonCD tutorials stop after you copy all the packages to the cache using the "restore" feature.

I would like to restore all my previous packages from another install of ubuntu. How would I do this without typing "apt-get package" for each package that I happen to recall the complete name of? Or, how would I install just packages from the AptonCD backup, and all of them?

Perhaps I should have used the dpkg command and restored from the created list, but here I am, so I hope someone can help me out.

Thanks,
glass.dimly
