Apt-fetcher released

Here is something for all Debian based Linux distribution users. Apt-fetcher is a command line oriented program, which utilizes the apt-get functions found within Debian based distributions.

Without further ado here is a screenshot, which should give a pretty clear vision about the program itself.

Apt-fetcher running. Enter is an escape key, which quits to program - if no numeric selection is given before pressing it.

How to make everything functional

1. After download make apt-fetcher executable:

chmod +x apt.sh

2. Move apt-fetcher to /usr/share

sudo cp -R apt.sh /usr/share

You can of course put apt-fetcher anywhere you want. If you do use a custom location change all the respawn lines to point to that location. (look for the lines formatted as: sh /usr/share/apt.sh which appear within the selections.)

3. Run the program and enjoy

sh /usr/share/apt.sh

By default apt-fetcher presumes the usage of sudo.  If you have an actual root account you should be just fine using apt-fetcher once you have entered root state with su root
