How can I install software or packages without Internet (offline)?

I have no access to the internet on my computer and am trying to install all my required software through another computer. I have downloaded the deb file for gfortran version 4.5, and now I am looking for options to install the same on the computer which has Ubuntu 12.04.

Assuming that you aren't referring to the Saskatoon Business College, what exactly do you mean by "SBC"? – SirCharlo Sep 28 '12 at 13:14
Single Board Computer(Intel Atom), same as any intel PC with ubuntu 12.04 OS on it, my main interest is how one can install compilers,etc., with out using ubuntu software center or with no internet access. – VRU Sep 28 '12 at 13:19

Does the two pc's have same architecture?! and same version of Ubuntu? Also if they have same update then you can cheat and copy the deb packages from /var/cache/apt/archives to your second pc and then sudo dpkg -i *.deb I work this method sometimes myself

Here is a link about some methods how to install a softwar with no-internet connection

Also you can use keryx to download deb files from windows

Also you can use apt-offline
