Because of download restriction, I would like to know if it is possible to install LibreOffice (or other software) from Ubuntu 12.04 DVD to Ubuntu studio?

I have Ubuntu studio 12.04 installed and have Ubuntu 12.04 DVD.

Sorry about my bad english, yes, from ubuntu 12.04 DVD to Ubuntu studio – Ali Jun 6 '12 at 12:54
Ubuntu 12.04 has Libreoffice when installing, while ubuntu-studio has not by default, when i insert ubuntu dvd, a synaptic package manager opens, may be possible to get Libreoffice from ubuntu cd or dvd. – Ali Jun 6 '12 at 12:58

In short answer - No, You can't. Because the openoffice is installed in the Live filesystem of Ubuntu DVD ( they are not in .deb format)

Long answer - yes. You can use the installed packages in the Live filesystem by repacking those packages, This is a complicated way ( but, I used this method once ) See the question Can I use Kubuntu Live CD to install kubuntu-desktop package on a Ubuntu installation? for details
