gambas-apt.gambas - program to install Debian packages from a web
gambas-apt.gambas [user] package
This manual page documents briefly the gambas-apt.gambas
gambas-apt.gambas is a program installed by the aptlinex Debian
package. Executing it from a command line does not have too much
sense, only for debugging purposes.
The program will install the package using standard apt utils. The
installation will be done according to the sources.list the user has
already setup. gambas-apt will not modify that setup. If the package
has a freedesktop.org menu or a Debian menu, after installing it will
show a dialog offering to create a Desktop launcher.
The logical use of this program is being launched from a web browser,
answering to a link using the apt:// protocol.
These program only have a possible option:
user user name that launches gambas-apt. If ommited it will be 'root'
