tasksel - a user interface for installing tasks
tasksel install <task> tasksel remove <task> tasksel [options]
tasksel shows all available tasks and allows to user to select ones to install
-t, --test test mode; don't actually install or remove packages --new-install automatically select some tasks without even displaying them to the user; default other tasks to on; used during new Debian installs. --list-tasks list on stdout the tasks that would be displayed in the tasksel interface --task-packages task lists on stdout the packages that are available and part of the given task Note that this option may be given more than once. --task-desc task outputs the extended description of the given task --debconf-apt-from waypoint Start the debconf-apt-progress bar here. --debconf-apt-to waypoint End the debconf-apt-progress bar here. --debconf-apt-progress options Pass the specified options to the debconf-apt-progress command that tasksel runs. These will be appended to any --from and --to options constructed by tasksel itself based on --debconf-apt-from and --debconf-apt-to options.
/usr/share/tasksel/*.desc and /usr/local/share/tasksel/*.desc are used to define tasks.
