I tried synaptic days ago. I will do it now to send you exactly what I get in
response to an attempt to install virus software. That is foolish. Sure, I
can get synaptic, but I am on my laptop. Unless I can get synaptic and put it
on the other computer so that I can install it, I h a v e n o connection
on the offended computer. Both GUI and command line require a connection to
the Internet to install a package.
Do you remember that when installing a program on windows, you used a CD and
installed it that way. That is what I need this time. I need a CD that has
an unexecuted virus application in it, so I can first get the data into the
other computer, then execute the installation. I do not seem to be able to
get anyone to understand this need. We are all so used to applying
applications by clicking kdesudo apt-get install ......... or entering the
name of the application into a package manager and clicking apply, that we
don't apparently realize that that is all taking place over the Internet. I
no longer have that connection in the affected computer; I can't move the
application into my computer to install it.
