aptitude-gtk not working at all in wheezy( testing )


Sir,

aptitude-gtk is not working at all in wheezy( testing ). when I issue the command output is the command aptitude-gtk does not exist. I have installed all the packages related to aptitiude from online testing repositories.Please notice that aptitude is working in terminal but not opening gui frontend.

Can I install squeeze version of aptitude-gtk on wheezy( testing ).I have tried this but showed some dependencies. Can u please suggest a command to install squeeze version of aptitude-gtk ignoring dependencies.

Please help me.

Reagrds,
Rupesh.

Looking in Synaptic Aptitude-gtk doesn't appear to be listed anywhere for Wheezy. You would be better off using Synaptic than installing Squeeze aptitude gtk.

Don't ignore dependencies in Debian. They are dependencies for a reason. If you want a system where you ignore dependencies use Slackware instead.

As k3lt01 said if you want a graphical frontend use synaptic.

Otherwise aptitude or apt-get from terminal will work just fine. That is the method I prefer.

Just me, but I feel you have a little more control from the console and get restricted by the gui sometimes.

Nope not just you, cavedweller. I also think it's a lot easier to find out what's wrong if there's a problem when using the console.
