I put it on my non-internet computer and extracted the archive.

I followed the instructions in the README file to

In fact it says

So unless they come as standard in a default destop install of Ubuntu 9.10, I am probably missing most of these.

Anyone know where I can get a package with these in it?
I understand a bit about Synaptic, but not how to source stuff from a disk.
