View Full Version : [ubuntu] download packages

October 12th, 2008, 07:58 PM
Hello everyone...

I have configured my repositories to a local server, wherein many packages are cached. I have downloaded and installed some of them using the Synaptic Package Manager. But now I just want to download all of these installed packages again. How could I do this?

if you just want the packages then i think you only need to apt-get them instead of apt-get install. i have not done this but im sure the help in apt get gives you the command parameters.

There is an option in synaptic that allows you to download the packages only.

See attached screenshot.
