Weekend Download:APTonCD

APTonCD is a really handy app for Ubuntu users and it saved my day many a times.To me, it's a great backup utility and I can restore all my former updates and apps with a single click without connecting to the internet again.It's a good utility to share all your packages and updates with your friends.It's a must for all the Ubuntu users and the latest Ubuntu versions bundling this app.If you don't have, you can download from the website. APTonCD usually restores your packages in the cache folder.It's a 2step process to install them.Thanks to Ubuntu forums.

1.Open the terminal and navigate to cache folder by typing "cd /var/cache/apt/archives".

2.Type "sudo dpkg -i *.deb" to install all the packages restored there by APTonCD.
