Ubuntu – Using .deb packages in /var/cache/apt/archives


I found all-deb-packages after downloading in /var/cache/apt/archives.And i am unable to use them on other systems.

For cheese software i found

"cheese_3.2.0-0ubuntu2_i386.deb" and

i ran both the packages in my friend's laptop and both do not install cheese.

                HOW TO USE THESE PACKAGES??

  • When you install .deb packages directly (I assume you used dpkg -i) you need to make sure that you install also all dependencies because dpkg doesn't resolve dependencies automatically. I think this is probably the problem that you're having.

    Besides this, in other answers to similar problems, I've seen keryx being recommended. Maybe you should give it a try.
