    How to join many deb files into one single deb file??


    i have downloaded all the files needed for ktorrent under ubuntu 8.10. Instaling it is a very tiring process.
    i want to know whether these files can be merged into one file so that i can install all of them with just one click of my mouse.
    if they can be then how do i do it.

    the thing is that i want to create a single deb file out of all the 40 files

    i have already tried

    "Go into a terminal, and use cd to go to the directory of the file.
    Remember your home directory is at /home/(YourUserName)/
    Then type:
    sudo dpkg -i *

    If this a directory containing only the .deb files, it will install them all at once.
    Or you can do:
    sudo dpkg -i /home/(YourUserName)/(FolderOfFiles)/"


    but failed

    Do you have an internet conection, or are you stuck without one? Best practice is to use your package manager, in this case Synaptic Package Manager to do the install and handle dependencies.

    If you are without a connection, either of the above commands should work. Put them all in your home directory and run
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i ~/*.deb
    I would definitely try to stick with your package manager if possible.
