On an off-line linux mint laptop, let's say I want to install PCL. I only can transfer files by USB. After reading documentation on installation it looks like installing compiling the code myself might be the easiest solution but what to do with all the dependencies needed ?
Also I want to check if there's not a more convenient way to install a package on an offline machine. For the moment I see two possible ways, one using the package manager and the other one which is compiling everything myself:
- Download the code from github and all its dependencies. Compile everything.
- Downloading the package from
apton a virtual machine with the same architecture, version, software installed and then transfer it to USB.
Any idea or suggestion would be much appreciated.
