I'm trying to do an offline Armory install on Unbuntu 16.04.3 LTS running on a computer that is not connected to the internet, but the "0.96.0 for Ubuntu/Debian 64-bit with GCC 5.3" install file doesn't appear to have the dependencies needed to complete that install offline.

Is there a way to get those dependencies without connecting my computer to the internet? Do I need  to install an older release of Armory if I want to do the offline cold storage/online watch only wallet?  Or is it something else?

Thanks in advance.

0.96.0 does not have offline packages. You must install Armory 0.96.2 which has offline packages, available here: https://btcarmory.com/0.96.2-release/

Thank you - I grabbed the "armory_0.96.2-ubuntu14.04_amd64.deb" file you linked to, copied it to the offline computer, and extracted it to the desktop to get the resulting "0.96.2-ubuntu14.04-amd64_offline" folder.  However, the two .deb files in that folder ("armory_0.96.2-ubuntu14.04_amd64.deb" and "python-psutil_21.2.1-1uuntu2_amd64.deb") open as GUI's with "Install" button, but nothing happens when you click those "Install" buttons.

Apologies in advance if this is basic Linux/Ubuntu stuff - I'm not an experienced user.

From the terminal, browse to the folder with the .deb files and type the following command:

Code:
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Since you're using 16.04, I think you're probably going to run into the same issue as Rothbart did here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2133694.msg21677920#msg21677920

Short answer is you'll still be missing dependencies on 16.04, but these are included as part of the base distro for 14.04.

Thanks for the help!  I installed Unbuntu 14.04.5, and then used the "armory_0.96.2-ubuntu14.04-amd64_offline.tar.gz" file to install Armory and the dependencies and everything seemed to go fine (Ubuntu Software Center says they're both installed).  However, when I try to launch Armory (Offline), nothing happens.

Am I having the same problem as Rothbart with my processor?  My computer has an "Intel  Pentium D CPU 2.80 GHz x 2"...

Yep, older CPU. Build from source on the target machine.

Thanks goatpig - Are there any resources on how to build from the source?

Also, I noted in the Rothbart thread that you mentioned "I'll fix the CPU fuckery for the next version if you wanna revisit this in ~1 month" - if that means I just need to wait 1 month to be able to install the next offline release on my older computer, that would work fine for me too.
