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

I am about to format my computer and install Ubuntu. This particular computer is the local server that provides internet to all machines in our network. I will be installing Ubuntu 12.04 Server Edition. However, for my internet to work I need a particular package, which is not included in the regular list of packages that are included in the installation. This is the Madwimax package.

After I install Ubuntu, what is the proper way to install Madwimax, without some manual install (i.e. using apt-get, but without having internet)? Currently I still have internet so I can go and download certain packages, but I'm just not sure what and how.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


There are actually several options. I believe one of these should work for you:

AptGet/Offline from help.ubuntu.com

AptMedium from debian.org

apt-offline from debian.org


You could use Keryx - http://keryxproject.org/


You can download the .deb file, copy it to usb stick (or something like that) and after the setup is done just install it via "sudo dpkg -i xxx".

For that to work you need all dependencies though!
