The Internet, is the best way..

In the terminal or via synaptic: mint menu>system>Package Manager, download only, select some other directory (folder)than /tmp, or you will lose those files usually) on a reboot.

--you can download only and install after you disconnect the Internet
--this more of a problem with hardware detection for example, which assumes you have an internet connection, to simplify the download and install..

DrHu ,
thanks for your response. It is true that internet is the best solution. I am living in India. here users without internet connections are in big numbers. There should be some way to use this nice OS for them.
Is there any way that you suggest the urs. I download the .deb packages and store them in Pendrive and install it at home and everything work nicely. I now that this is cumbersome but is there any way?
so please help in this way.
