It is a part of the "udev" package, which should be installed by default.

Type this to check it up:
~$ dpkg -S udevtrigger
If you get this:

udev: /sbin/udevtrigger
udev: /usr/share/man/man8/udevtrigger.8.gz

you are all set.

Or if you don't use dpkg

just do a "whereis udevtrigger"

I should have been more clear ...

I meant the extra blank line to show that it's not in any package available from my current repositories, let alone installed on my system.

I meant where, as "in what repository", not how, like locate, find, whereis, dpkg -S, udev<TAB>, etc.

I normally don't bother w/ so much system info., but I was hoping for an answer specific to mine. See below:

# dpkg -S udevtrigger
dpkg: *udevtrigger* not found.
So it's not in any installed package, but udev is installed:
# aptitude search udev
p   ludevit    - converter from standard Slovak into the L.
i   udev       - /dev/ and hotplug management daemon
p   uudeview   - Smart multi-file multi-part decoder (command line)
These are the commands that start w/ "udev", udevtrigger is not among them:
# udev<TAB>
udevadm     udevd       udevinfo    udevsettle
Finally, here is the version of udev that is installed:
# dpkg -l udev
| Status=Not/Inst/Cfg-files/Unpacked/Failed-cfg/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name   Version          Description
ii  udev   0.125-7+lenny3   /dev/ and hotplug management daemon
I suspect that the version which MEPIS 8.0.15 uses is older & that is why it doesn't contain udevtrigger.


label, mount, partition, reboot, udev
