NAME

       session-installer - allows applications to easily install and remove software

SYNOPSIS

       session-installer

DESCRIPTION

       Session-installer   allows  applications  to  easily  install  additional  software  (e.g.
       extensions or GSreamer codecs), uninstall files and perform simple package status  queries
       by calling a distribution neutral D-Bus interface.

       The whole process of confirmation, error reporting and progress notification is handled by
       sessioninstaller. Currently it comes only with a GTK based user interface.

       The D-Bus interface is developed under the PackageKit umbrella and  is  available  on  the
       session  bus.  The  reference implementation can be found in gnome-packagekit. It was also
       adpoted by KPackageKit.

       In contrast to gnome-packagekit and KPackageKit it doesn't use the PackageKit  daemon  for
       querying   and  installation,  but  instead  makes  use  of  APT  and  aptdaemon  directly
       (alternatively synaptic can be used).

       Normally it is not required to start this programme manually since it makes use  of  D-Bus
       activation and will be started on request automatically.

ENVIRONMENT

       SESSIONINSTALLER_BACKEND
              Set the package manager which should be used for installation.  Possible values are
              aptdaemon, synaptic and dummy.
