I used aptoncd to creat .iso of installed packages and also add some packages not installed by apt-get ( i have .deb from previous install like vlc, apache2 etc).

I am able to restore all packages using aptoncd but when i try to install vlc or any other package.

sudo apt-get install vlc

it try to download it again

0 upgraded, 59 newly installed, 0 to remove and 149 not upgraded.
1 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 0 B/16.5 MB of archives.
After this operation, 66.7 MB of additional disk space will be used.

I can't use this

sudo dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/*.deb

because there are many packages that related to gnome3 and don't want to reinstall ubuntu again. i am on ubuntu 13.04

Is there any way to do it. or aptoncd == copy your .deb manually
