       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


       -ftype, --frontend=type
           Select the frontend to use. The default frontend can be permanently
           changed by:

            dpkg-reconfigure cdebconf

           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.

       -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.

           Reconfigure all installed packages that use cdebconf. 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 dpkg-reconfigure to reconfigure a package even if the package
           is in an inconsistent or broken state. Use with caution.

       -h, --help
           Display usage help.
