[Solved] Offline Program Installation

Post by DJF113 »

Probably something that everyone else that uses Mint knows how to do, but hey! This is the Newbie Questions section! :D None of my computers have regular access to the internet. I do have permission to download files onto a computer at work though. Is there a good way to get programs offline? I tried a synaptic script, but a lot of them ended up broken. I think it probably was because I hadn't updated anything yet, but I couldn't find anything concrete on it. I did get online recently and ran the apt-get update and apt-get upgrade command, but haven't had the chance to see if that made any difference.

Depending on what you want to install, if you can download a deb file you can then transfer it to your PC and double click to install it.
