Not sure what you mean here.
Are you just wanting to install gnome-ppp offline?
Edit (later) -
Just out of curiosity I tried to install gnome-ppp in mate after enabling the local respository as above.
I couldn't install it offline from Software Manager or Synaptic Package Manager or even in the terminal as you should be able to.
It kept wanting to go online to download the packages, even though you know they are already on your hard drive in the local repository
- and, of course, you aren't online yet
Similar to this: http://forum.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=103370
In the end I did it a "messy" way adapted from the link above:
Navigate through File System to /usr/share/local-repository/binary
Copy the following files (versions/names may vary slightly - this was for 32-bit):
Go to your /home folder, create new folder "gnome-ppp"
Paste the above 5 files into it.
While still gnome-ppp folder:
Click File > Open in terminal, type
- Code: Select all
sudo dpkg --install --recursive .
(note the dot at the end of the command)
This will install all the files in the correct order.
Alternatively, you can double-click on each of the files above (in that order
) to install.
Gnome-ppp was then available in Menu > Internet.
