Easily install apt packages from web links

Posted on | January 9, 2010 | No Comments

Did you know that you can easily create a link that will install or update a package for your apt based system? It’s easy with APT-URL! The syntax is simple, just apt:{package-name}, and your ubuntu, android, or debian system should try and grab the package. Makes it really easy when documenting package information online.
