Using GUI Debian Package Tools

Commercial Debian derivatives have developed GUI front-ends to Debian's package utilities. One of these that's worked its way into the standard Debian package set is the Storm Package Manager (stormpkg), as shown in Figure 11.2. This program is essentially a GUI version of dselect; it provides an expandable list of installed and uninstalled packages. You can select a package to install or uninstall it. Picking Packages Ô Update updates the package list, much like the dselect Update option. This tool is very useful if you're uncomfortable with dselect's keyboard-based package navigation.

Figure 11.2: The Storm Package Manager is similar to GNOME RPM and other GUI RPM utilities.
