    Lightbulb mint linux : Install packages from DVD after installation


    How to install packages from source DVD on Linux mint ?

    Installed Linux mint on friends machine,two days back.
    Now I don't have access to his machine. He don't have
    internet connection, whats to add some more package like
    g++ compilers. I'm not really sure about the steps as I'm
    not mint user :P

    Anyone here knows the steps to install packages without
    network via DVD/CD after installation ?

    would this be the same as the Ubuntu method? I would think so, have him give it a try:

    installation - How do remove the CD / DVD install as a source for apt-get packages when installing new features? - Ask Ubuntu
