command-line aptoncd for ubuntu server.

Registered by Shailen Sobhee on 2007-07-26

I made an aptoncd iso of my repositories on ubuntu server with gnome-desktop installed by issuing the sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop command. How do I restore ubuntu-desktop from a the terminal/command-line interface of Ubuntu Server 7.04?

I think this is more a question than a blueprint, here we go:
You don't need aptoncd to 'restore' the packages at all.
The disc created with aptoncd is completely APT-suitable, so you just need to add it as apt source with:
$ sudo apt-cdrom add

That's it. Now when you apt-get install someprogram it will looks for it into the CD (see the apt-get manual for more details).

Regards.
