I have the questionable pleasure to install some Ubuntu software on my Eeepc in order to record a few video tutorials. It’s one step towards a successful crowdfunding campaign and therefore very important.
Now this PC doesn’t have a connection to the internet. That’s where it gets ugly.
When I try to install Gimp, it tells me I miss dependencies.
And when I try to install the debs that are listed when I type
sudo dpkg -i gimpxyz123
then of course these dependencies have dependencies, too.
Same for ffmpeg.
Is there a way to make this a bit less cumbersome? Or do I have to really sort this out one by one?
I can’t afford fast internet right now (or slow). Or electricity. Or proper food. And the fast internet PC at the library doesn’t allow networking.
Since it needs to be done, I take the brute force road (now, an hour later I actually have 2 apps installed…). But I’m curious for the future.
