Do you mean that when you apt-get something outside scratchbox it
works? If that's what you mean then you are making a mistake:
scratchbox's apt is not the same as your main system's apt. That
includes the available packages and the repositories. Maybe I
misunderstood you?

You can do apt-get -d install packages and the collect the packages
from /var/cache/apt/archives/, put them on the other pc and just do
dpkg -i packages.
