Yes, your approach is feasible.In fact, I have been doing : I found a packet and its dependence from http :// .After downloading i use sudo dpkg -i *** .

Many rely on such methods need to download packages, but there are many packages rely on packet really troublesome : (

In any case,I now have a successful gxine installation through dpkg . I think the best solution is to have a network environment.

Thank you, Darren Salt!

That's fine; neither am I. :-)

But you can still download, and you can install packages by using dpkg.

You can download packages via, e.g.
<URL:>: click on "edgy" then download
the package for whichever architecture you're using and follow the links for
the packages on which it depends and download the .debs of them too.
Installation is by dpkg:

  $ sudo dpkg -i libx11-dev_*deb ...

(where "..." represents the other packages which are required by it).

If you want to eliminate some of the guesswork regarding what's installed,
then (again, using libx11-dev by way of example):

  $ apt-cache show libx11-dev

should work regardless of network connection (presumably, you have the CD; at
any rate, you'll have the list of packages which are present on it right
where apt can get at it) - look in the Depends line and check those packages
- add them to the list of packages to be downloaded and check *their* Depends
lines if they're not installed.

  $ dpkg -l libx11-dev

will show if libx11-dev is installed.
