dpkg-reconfigure - reconfigure an already installed package
dpkg-reconfigure [options] packages
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.
|-ftype, --frontend=type||Select the frontend to use. The default frontend can be permanently changed by:
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.|
