Downloading packages for Linux on Windows
I've got a problem.I don't have an internet connection at home (where
I use Ubuntu Linux), and every time I need to intstall new software,
I've got to download all necessary packages at work manually, one
after another, day by day.
The package I want to install can't be installed because it depends on
package A. So I wait until next day and download package A at work.
When I arrive home and try to install package A, it says it depends on
package B and so on and so on.
I've been trying to install the VLC player for a week now by
downloading single packages every day. And I don't think I'll be done
untill next year.
Is there some kind of 'Synaptic' for windows to make it easier for me?
Thanks a lot.
