NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dpkg-reconfigure - reconfigure an already installed package

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

	dpkg-reconfigure [options] packages

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       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

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       -ftype, --frontend=type
	   Select the frontend to use. The default frontend can be permanently
	   changed by:

	    dpkg-reconfigure debconf

	   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.
