apt-install

Update APT cache and install package(s) with progress GUI.

I hacked it together in order to learn a bit about the aptdaemon, GLib, asynchronous programming etc.

Python code is ugly but works. Needs more error handling. Could probably be written much nicer.

Usage:

$ apt-install.py <package-name> [...]

Building & Installation

Simply run make to create a DEB package in out/. Build Requirements are debuild(1), git-dch(1) and ronn. For Ubuntu/Debian install the devscripts git-buildpackage ruby-ronn make debhelper packages.

To create a release github-release needs to be in your PATH.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
