NAME

       dpkg-reconfigure - reconfigure an already installed package

SYNOPSIS

        dpkg-reconfigure [options] packages

DESCRIPTION

       dpkg-reconfigure reconfigures packages after they have already been installed. Pass it the
       names of a package or packages to reconfigure. It will ask configuration questions, much
       like when the package was first installed.

       If you just want to see the current configuration of a package, see debconf-show(1)
       instead.

OPTIONS

       -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. See
           debconf(7) for a list.

       --default-priority
           Use whatever the default priority of question is, instead of forcing the priority to
           low.

       -a, --all
           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
           Force dpkg-reconfigure to reconfigure a package even if the package is in an
           inconsistent or broken state. Use with caution.

       --no-reload
           Prevent dpkg-reconfigure from reloading templates. Use with caution; this will prevent
           dpkg-reconfigure from repairing broken templates databases.  However, it may be useful
           in constrained environments where rewriting the templates database is expensive.

       -h, --help
           Display usage help.
