Debian Package Search is a GUI for searching packages and showing package information.
Debian Package Search provides a single interface for different types of search including a full text search (apt-cache search) and searching by categories (debtags search). Debtags is a new approach for categorizing the Debian packages developed by Enrico Zini (see http://debtags.alioth.debian.org/ for more information). Once you have found an interesting package you can install from within the user interface.
For some more information consider taking a look at the program's help page.
Please tell me if you like or dislike the application by voting with either good or bad (this is on www.kde-apps.org).
Debian Package Search was accepted into the official Debian unstable, testing and stable release. The easiest way to install the package is simply using apt-get install packagesearch.
If you like to do things manually, download the .deb file from the
sourceforge download area
and install it via
dpkg -i packagesearch_filename.deb or your favourite package
If you want to compile the program from source, download the sources and follow the instructions in the INSTALL file.
