Local repository and Gnome-Software?


is there a way to use Gnome-Software with a local repository (available on an external hard drive) ? I know we can use Gnome-software offline to install packages and/or updates. I searched on the net but I don’t find the solution for what I want. Gnome-Software seems to use PackageKit to install or update software.

So, can you help me and tell me how to use Gnome-software with offline option ?

Thank you very much.


Probably you should start from pacman/Tips and tricks - ArchWiki
Down the documentation it explains all you have to do.

The question of creating local repositories has been raised numerous times.

The search function is your friend - if you don’t get an immediate result - try rephrasing the query.
