       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

       -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.
