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
Select the frontend to use. The default frontend can be permanently
Note that if you normally have cdebconf set to use the
noninteractive frontend, dpkg-reconfigure will use the dialog
frontend instead, so you actually get to reconfigure the package.
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 cdebconf. Warning: this
may take a long time.
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.
