auto-apt checks the file access of programs running within its environments, and if a program tries to access a file known to belong in an uninstalled package, auto-apt will install that package using apt-get. This feature requires apt and sudo to work.
It also provides simple database to search which package contains a requested file.
Open up the terminal Application > Accessories > Terminal and type following command:
to install auto-apt:
sudo apt-get install auto-aptWhat you do, basically, is run:
sudo auto-apt update
sudo auto-apt updatedb && sudo auto-apt update-local
auto-apt run commandWhere `command' is the command to be executed that may need some unavailable file. For example:
auto-apt run ./configureIt will then ask to install the needed packages and call apt-get automatically. If you're running X, a graphical interface will replace the default text interface.
Auto-apt keeps databases which need to be kept up-to-date in order for it to be effective. This is achieved by calling the commands auto-apt update, auto-apt updatedb and auto-apt update-local.
