Ubuntu: how to transfer and install a software from one system to another?

I have already installed VLC in my Ubuntu 12.10 and i wish to transfer it to my friend who has no internet connection.so please help me out.


Solution:1

Try aptoncd

APT removable repository creator and package backup tool for Debian based systems.

This tool will allow you to create a media (CD or DVD) to use to install software via APT in a non-connected machine, as well upgrade and install the same set of softwares in several machines with no need to re-download the packages again.

Run the following to install the package via terminal Ctrl+Alt+T

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install aptoncd  

It makes a copy of all the packages on your system allowing you to install those packages on another system.

Just a side note, you could also copy all the deb files for the packages you have installed (as long as you haven't run sudo apt-get clean to clean the apt-get cache) from

/var/cache/apt/archives
