The full set of Ubuntu Repository DVDs (set of 5 DVDs) is now available. You can request for your copy of the Ubuntu Repositories through our RequestCD program. The ubuntu repository DVDs contain the complete set of packages under the main, universe, multiverse and restricted repositories in Ubuntu. Please note that we will mail out the DVDs only within India.

If you have the complete Ubuntu Repository you do not have to have an internet connection to install any package that is normally available through Synaptic Package Manager. First create a set of directories like /var/ubuntu/dvd-n where n is the DVD number. Then copy the contents of the Ubuntu Repository DVDs to five folders. Edit /etc/apt/sources.list and add the following lines

deb file:///var/ubuntu/dvd-1 main restricted multiverse universe
deb file:///var/ubuntu/dvd-2 main restricted multiverse universe
deb file:///var/ubuntu/dvd-3 main restricted multiverse universe
deb file:///var/ubuntu/dvd-4 main restricted multiverse universe
deb file:///var/ubuntu/dvd-5 main restricted multiverse universe

Now run apt-get update and you are all set. You are liberated from the net. You don't have to be connected always. You can always sample any of the 23000 odd packages in the Ubuntu repositories any time you wish to, without worrying about the bandwidth.

We are happy to announce the beta launch of our new public service. You can now request us for any software that is freely available on the internet and which you cannot download on your own because of your bandwidth or time limitations. We will download the software, write the CD/DVD and mail the software to you. As simple as that. The mission of this project is simple - to promote Open Source software among those who have limited internet connectivity.

Allow only the term 'Free software' a la GNU. Also, do your good work ONLY for software that satisfies GNU's stringent and 'virginity conscious' licences. How do you spell the noun 'licence' in your writings? (To the cursory observers or 'pragmatic' 'thinkers', this may sound like trivial, idle nitpicking. Experience will show that it is not. Remember Gandhiji.) moral: Do not compromise principles even BEFORE you do any good. Don't compromise even AFTER yo do it. But that longer and harder journey begins right now. Good luck (and purest, uncompromisingest goals) for your project. webmaster access_time 24 Oct 2020 - 20:05 In reply to free software cd's/dvd's by mukund joglekar (not verified) Dear Mukund, Thank you for your valuable input and suggestions. We have a few people working on the content here and hence the slight variations on spelling (US vs British issues). We try to stick to US versions as far as possible. But, yes, we will be more careful in the future. Our definition of FLOSS, FOSS and Open Source is the same as the purest definition by GNU. However we believe that all the other variants subscribe to the same philosophy to varying degrees. Our vision is to promote the concept of open source as a viable alternative to closed source solutions. This would mean that sometimes we have to promote non GPLed software too. Some of the non-GPLed software are very popular and most of them embrace the philosophy behind GPL wholeheartedly. But some the non-GNU licenses allow some parasitic elements to thrive on such licensed software. I am referring to licenses like BSD licenses that does not require the user to distribute source code with their modifications. In our opinion, to not promote these variants of Open Source Licenses would be akin to shooting oneself in the foot to cure an itch in the foot. Thus, even though we understand and realize the superiority of GPL over non-GPL variants, we have taken a stand to promote Open Source in general. Weeding out can happen later when the Open Source camp has built itself up into an empire.

I have got those dvd repositories by VPP. but it seems not all packages available in them. i have added those dvds with synaptic. when i tired to install k3b its showing that libqt3-mt is not present like that even when i was installing vlc player there was package like libnavdvd which i had to download from internet.

i think those missing packaes are also packages from ubuntu community. Is there any packages which are not available with those dvds or i was somewhere wrong...
