              confirmation of the changes, which makes this method quite dangerous since it could
              remove a lot of packages.

       --sources-file SOURCES_FILE
              Specify  an alternative sources file to which the new repository should be written.
              SOURCES_FILE should be only the basename: backports.list

       --list-trusted-vendors
              Show all trusted software vendors and theirs keys.

       --hide-terminal
              Do not attach to the interactive terminal of the underlying dpkg call.

       --allow-unauthenticated
              Allow to install packages which are not from a trusted vendor.

EXAMPLES

       The following command will install the package xterm and remove the package eterm  in  the
       same run:
              $ aptdcon --install "xterm" --remove "eterm"

       To  handle  more  than  one  package  the  names  have to be put into quotation marks. The
       following command will install xterm and eterm:
              $ aptdcon --install "xterm eterm"

       The following command will add the backport repository to the sources.list in  a  separate
       file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/backports.list :
              $ aptdcon --sources-file backports.list \
                  --add-repostiry "deb http://archive.backports.org/debian stable main"

DIAGNOSTICS

       By default aptdaemon logs to the syslog facility AptDaemon. Furthermore you can use the -d
       option to get additional information on the command line.
