I want to install VLC to my Ubuntu laptop, which has no connection to the internet. To work around this I want to download it to my Windows machine, copy it to a USB drive and install on my Ubuntu machine. How can I do this?
You can download the .deb package version here vlc .deb package and dependencies either i386 or amd64 on windows.
after that you can transfer by using USB stick and install it to Ubuntu by right click using GDEBI pakage installer in Ubuntu. If there's messages about dependencies not met than you need to download the dependencies and install it manually and it's provided on that website also.
*WARNING all dependencies must be install first until theres no message appear.
Hope it help.
