My environment is: Windows 7==>Oracle VirtualBox==>Ubuntu 12.4 (32 bit).
I want to understand a few details about Archive Manager.
(1) Is it the same as Aptitude which I presume is a downloadable file?
(2) When I look at Archive Manager page (after I double clicked on its name) I see a long column of checkboxes. Only one is checked:
APT based Installer using PackageKit's session DBus API (sessioninstaller).
The only word I understand here is API.
(3) What is APT?
(4) What is PackageKit?
(5) Does it make sense for me to check any other checkboxes?
One of the items down there is:
Manipulate zoo archives (zoo).
What is zoo archives?
(6) How do I use this package? Where do I start. How can I see some action
Thank you, - alexBB
