Brazilian Debian Pure Blend - common packages

This package is depended on by all the different BrDesktop flavors, and depends in turn on the common set of packages needed by BrDesktop. It is not useful on its own. BrDesktop is a Debian Pure Blend designed for Brazilian desktop users. Its main goal is to make Debian easier to install and more pleasant to use for these users by providing a selection of free software covering most of the tasks a desktop user may want to do with his computer, a customized desktop theme and a streamlined installation process with Brazilian localization options and packages pre-selected.


More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
