Question Automatix Supported For Debian?

I know Automatix works great for Ubuntu but I was wondering if there is support for Debian? I searched for this via "APT-CACHE SEARCH AUTOMATIX" and found nothing.

Nope its a lazy Ubuntu way of doing things. Not to mention kinda unsafe way, trusting a script to install things for you is not really a good idea.

Use Synaptic and you can install all the same crap in just a few clicks.

There's something called "Automatix for Etch" but I haven't tried it myself, so I cannot say if it actually works.
