Without a connection

Postby wajdlee on Sat Sep 26, 2009 3:17 am

Dear supporter, I'm having trouble with connecting to the Internet but that is not the point, I wonder If I can Download software in other way, such as getting the software i need from computer with Internet connection, and then Install it on my Linux Mint computer. After reading my question you will notice that I'm Newbie .
Thanks for your Support

Yes you can. Go to Menu, Package Manager, enter your root password, select the packages you want, then select "File, Generate Package Download Script". Save the script, copy it to a thumb drive and take it to another Mint computer and download the packages.
