The first is a hack I use. Copy the package files from
/var/lib/apt/list and the contents files from /var/cache/apt/ from the
desktop to the laptop and place the deb files in the
/var/cache/apt/archives directory on the laptop and apt-get should find
them as normal. Also put the entries from the sources.list on the
desktop onto the laptop and do 'apt-get update' this will fail because
you dont have an internet connection and just use the list you copied over.
Cool, this worked. There were about 30 debs I didn't have on my
desktop, and I made a list and ran aptitude download, as Florian
suggested, and got everything installed on the laptop.
