Package management (aptitude)

This recipe uses the aptitude frontend to find and install the pianobar application.

There are a number of frontends for the Advance Package Tool (apt) that provide a feature-rich user interface. Behind the scenes, these frontends still call the apt-get command and the apt-cache command. However, they combine the functionality of all the apt tools into a single user interface.

Tip

If you do not already have the aptitude application installed on your Raspberry Pi, use the instructions in the previous recipe (Installing a package) to install the aptitude software package and its dependencies.

After completing this recipe, you will be able to use the aptitude application to find and install software packages.
