I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS machine . I have another 25 Ubuntu machines to install same software packages . So , suppose I want to install gimp in 25 systems . If I will apt-get install gimp , it will utilize lots of bandwidth . Alternatively to me , downloading source code with all the dependencies and compiling them once forming a deb file .
Hence installing from deb file will make process very easy . So how to achieve this .
