    To install a program offline you need to understand "dependencies". Sometimes a program depends on other programs - but sometimes it does not. If a program depends on others you cannot just install the program, you have to have the other programs as well.

    Look here first: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1059

    There are other ways of installing programs offline with dependencies:
    Sushi huh? http://sushi-huh.sourceforge.net/
    AptOnCD http://aptoncd.sourceforge.net/
    There was also the Keryx Project, which seems to have gone for the moment.
