Remove the vendor key of the given FINGERPRINT to no longer trust packages from this vendor.

--add-repository ´DEB_LINE´

--allow-unauthenticated

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.
