Suppose I want to install ubuntu server on 30 different machines. It is very time consuming process for me to download and install GNOME on each of these machine because I can hardly get download speed upto 30 to 80 kbps and it takes more than half a day to complete.

So is there any way to download GNOME package, copy to usb and just install on whichever machine I want? And can I do it for other packages too?

    Though the wording is more like askubuntu.com/questions/974/…, since this is for multiple installations, a caching server might be more appropriate. – muru Jan 6 '17 at 10:15
  • what if the machine on which I can download packages is not connected to other machines on which i want to install package? There USB or CD is the only option. How to deal with this? – CH325 Jan 6 '17 at 10:19
  • then the question in my second comment is what you need – muru Jan 6 '17 at 10:20
  • @muru it seems that the USB thing which you have suggested will work only if the OS has GUI installed. But my problem is to install GUI itself. How to do that??? – CH325 Jan 6 '17 at 10:44
