    Hello,
    I have backups of my ex-ubuntu 11.10. after installing new ubuntu(same version) on my system I want to restore my backups which was from( /var/cache/apt/archives ). I restore it to same address and then type
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install "package"
    when I'm offline.
    but my softwares couldn't be restored. what do u suggest??
    Is there other way because it's near 2 months I can't find anyway!!
    please pay attention that I haven't high speed internet to download all packages again!

    If you still have folder with your packages then removev them from /var/cache/apt/archives and from terminal go to the folder where packages are and type

    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i *deb
    That will install all packages.
    There is no greater religion than a truth.
