Hi,

I am fresh to Ubuntu OS. I am used to windows. When I need software I download the .exe file to the local disk. I put in the ,exe file from my local disk. When I don't want that I shall uninstall that.

But the .exe file I save for future use. When I once more need it. I set up it. Just once I download the software as well as uphold in my local disk. In similar way cant I save the .deb file in my local folder as well as install that even if I am not connected to internet.

Can you please help me with this issue?

Well you can easily save all the .deb files with dependencies using the following command

sudo apt-get --download-only install packagename

And the files will be stored under /var/cache/apt/archives

Also in Synaptic>Preferences>Files make sure "Delete downloaded packages after installation" is NOT checked.

And if you click "Delete Cached Package Files" you will lose everything in /var/cache/apt/archives.
