One computer dies (Computer-A), so I order another (Computer-B) and decide to start Ubuntu anew. I have the HDD of the first computer in an external enclosure—and, for the next week, my internet sucks (and is restricted to about 1 Gb per day).
There's some software I'd like to install that's pretty heavy on the dependencies, all of which are installed via apt-get on Computer-A.
I'd like to be able to say something like:
sudo add-apt-repository Computer-A sudo apt-get install [program]
I know that the
.deb files are in
/var/cache/apt/archives, but I'd like to install them with the package manager, allowing for removal (and other things) as if I had downloaded and installed these packages from the Internet.
Is this possible?
