DPKG-RECONFIGURE(8)       (2021-06-10)        DPKG-RECONFIGURE(8)

     NAME
          dpkg-reconfigure - reconfigure an already installed package

     SYNOPSIS
           dpkg-reconfigure [options] packages

     DESCRIPTION
          dpkg-reconfigure reconfigures packages after they have
          already been installed. Pass it the names of a package or
          packages to reconfigure. It will ask configuration
          questions, much like when the package was first installed.

          If you just want to see the current configuration of a
          package, see debconf-show(1) instead.

     OPTIONS
          -ftype, --frontend=type
              Select the frontend to use. The default frontend can be
              permanently changed by:

               dpkg-reconfigure debconf

              Note that if you normally have debconf set to use the
              noninteractive frontend, dpkg-reconfigure will use the
              dialog frontend instead, so you actually get to
              reconfigure the package.

          -pvalue, --priority=value
              Specify the minimum priority of question that will be
              displayed.  dpkg-reconfigure normally shows low priority
              questions no matter what your default priority is. See
              debconf(7) for a list.

          --default-priority
              Use whatever the default priority of question is,
              instead of forcing the priority to low.

          -u, --unseen-only
              By default, all questions are shown, even if they have
              already been answered. If this parameter is set though,
              only questions that have not yet been seen will be
              asked.

          --force
              Force dpkg-reconfigure to reconfigure a package even if
              the package is in an inconsistent or broken state. Use
              with caution.

          --no-reload
              Prevent dpkg-reconfigure from reloading templates. Use

              with caution; this will prevent dpkg-reconfigure from
              repairing broken templates databases.  However, it may
              be useful in constrained environments where rewriting
              the templates database is expensive.

          -h, --help
              Display usage help.
