GUI browser and editor for Debian Package Tags

debtags-edit is an experimental GUI program for browsing the Debian package archive and tagging packages. Its purpose is to make it easy and fast for everyone to update tag data. Although the program is still in the state of a prototype, it already has new and interesting package search functions, and can perform local customizations of the tag database and send local modifications for inclusion in the central tag archive.


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.
