comment Install .deb on from CD-ROM while offline with default applications only
@Antoine: I have no set structure at this point. I have tried a raw CD with just a bunch of .deb files in the root. I have also tried an AptOnCD structure, which creates a "Packages" folder and the like. I have total control over how to create the CD, but can't find a format that works in Ubuntu offline.

dpkg won't resolve the dependencies. You have to install them in the right order. Or is there some switch that enables this behavior?

Yes, aptoncd would be great, but the whole point is I can't depend on an external tool because the user might not have that installed, and if he had an internet connection to install it, we wouldn't have a problem in the first place.

dpkg does not resolve the dependencies. I can't ask an end-user to move files around into a cache location. That communicates, "Your product sucks." :-)
