Linoob’s Guide to Aptitude-GUI 2 comments


Aptitude GUI is a graphical version of Aptitude we talked about in our previous post. As Aptitude has already been removed from official repository of Ubuntu, one cant expect to see this GUI based Aptitude by default in Ubuntu Precise Pangolin. But there is a way to install Aptitude-GTK in Ubuntu using the PPA below.

Howto Install

Now, this can be installed using the ppa below.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yofel/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install aptitude-gtk

After the install, to run Aptitude, just open the terminal and type :

sudo aptitude

The Aptitude Package manager features include Add/remove of Programs, list of Applications that need update, show Broken packages and help fix them and more.

Njoy !

    Thank you very much

    But I think it needs a lot of development yet.
