I've looked around, but couldn't find any information on this. I'd like to copy DOSBox to some Ubuntu/Mint PCs that aren't connected to the internet. The Download page from the DOSBox webpage only seems to give links to the source code tar archive as well as links to packages on various distros, but not any compiled binaries.

I've installed it using APT on my Linux Mint, then copied thendosbox executable from /usr/bin. Then used CONFIG -writeconf to generate a dosbox.conf file. Are those two files all I need or do I have to do anything else?

Thank you.

you probably need to libraries that get pulled when installing using apt-get
linux is almost never just copy an executable

OK, thanks. I've got the list of dependencies; I think some of them should already be isntalled. I'll play around with it today and the weekend and see if I can get it running.
