Greetings from Montana

Postby operator11 on Fri Sep 27, 2013 7:20 pm

I'm looking for a way to download all programs from several repositories. I have a project where I need to build a closed network, no access to the internet what so ever, but users will be using linux mint for desktops. I'll build my own repository for the users, but I need a way to copy the initial files to a portable hard drive. and once a month update the drive.

Anyway, Hi! I'm fairly new to Linux, but have been using Unix since 1995. Mostly SCO and AIX, some Solaris. I haven't had too many problems as of yet, it is the little differences that trip me up. :D

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You'll find most of the packages used by Mint/Ubuntu available in a couple of places.

packages.linuxmint.com

packages.ubuntu.com

Oh, and welcome to the Mint Forums. :D

Greetings back from Pennsylvania!

Package Manager has a mode where it will list all of the files required to install a package. It will also "download only" (not install) the files, but I never can remember where it puts them. For me, it is easiest in a Terminal session. I just create a version-specific folder and "apt-get download <filepath>" each of the files. Of course, this only works for applications in the Package Manager. Once you get the files, the command "gdebi" works great to install everything. Switch over to the "Newbie Questions" forum for more details or assistance on this. Warning: Sometimes the correct repository is no longer available, or has been moved, or is just hard to find. Hello! Good Luck!

Blessings in abundance, all the best, & ENJOY!
