I have properly installed TeX Live 2013 (in work with internet) on my NB. Now, I need install some packages on the same NB, but home without internet.

In work (other PC) downloaded missing package (for example):
# wget http://mirror.switch.ch/ftp/mirror/tex/systems/texlive/tlnet/archive/ascii-font.tar.xz
copying to USB, bringing home

Now trying installed (home without internet):
# tlmgr install --file ascii-font.tar.xz
cannot contact mirror.ctan.org, returning a backbone server!
tlmgr: Cannot load TeX Live database from http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/systems/texlive/tlnet

# tlmgr --repo=/path/to/file/ install --file ascii-font.tar.xz
tlmgr: Cannot load TeX Live database from /path/to/file/

OK, trying someone similarly back in work (with internet):
# tlmgr install --file ascii-font.tar.xz
tlmgr: package repository http://mirror.switch.ch/ftp/mirror/tex/systems/texlive/tlnet
Can't call method "setting" on an undefined value at /opt/texlive/2013/tlpkg/TeXLive/TLPDB.pm line 1413, <TMP> line 20.

How to properly use --file option (at least at work with internet) ?
