This question is an exact duplicate of:

I want to calibrate my LCD screen, but i have no internet connection to my Raspberry Pi 2B.

The terminal commands I would use with internet on the Raspberry Pi is

cp LCD-show/xinput-calibrator_0.7.5-1_armhf.deb ~/
sudo dpkg -i -B xinput-calibrator_0.7.5-1_armhf.deb

How can i still calibrate without internet?

  • Does that require the internet? dpkg -i just installs the given .deb - I wouldn't expect it to need the internet. Does it fail? What does it say? – Mark Smith Apr 15 at 12:36
  • ohhh, good point, the thins: i am a newbie. i thought that install ALWAYS requires internet – user101360 Apr 15 at 12:38
  • Hello. The commands you've given don't need the internet per-se: I'm guessing that dpkg is asking for support packages to be downloaded? Have you tried apt-offline to solve this? – Roger Jones Apr 15 at 12:38
  • You can download deb files on your laptop and move them to your Raspberry on a USB stick. Or connect your RPi to your laptop (with a cat5 cable) and use "internet connection sharing" on Windows to get the Raspberry online. Or are you located somewhere where you're off the grid? – Dougie Apr 15 at 12:51

Unless you are located somewhere where you're off the grid.

The above command should not require internet access. dpkg simply installs deb files given to it.
