dpkg-reconfigure - reconfigure an already installed package
dpkg-reconfigure [options] packages
dpkg-reconfigure reconfigures packages after they have already been
installed. Pass it the names of a package or packages to reconfigure.
This has the same effect as re-installing the package, basically. I hope
one day this will be called by dpkg --reconfigure
- -ftype, --frontend=type
Select the frontend to use. The default frontend can be permanently changed
Note that if you normally have debconf set to use the noninteractive
frontend, dpkg-reconfigure will use the dialog frontend instead, so you
actually get to reconfigure the package.
- -pvalue, --priority=value
Specify the minimum priority of question that will be displayed.
dpkg-reconfigure normally shows low priority questions no matter what your
default priority is.
Reconfigure all installed packages that use debconf. Warning: this may take
a long time.
- -u, --unseen-only
By default, all questions are shown, even if they have already been
answered. If this parameter is set though, only questions that have not yet
been seen will be asked.
Force dpkg-reconfigure to reconfigure a package even if the package is in an
inconsistent or broken state. Use with caution.
- -h, --help
Display usage help.
