       --sources-file SOURCES_FILE
	      Specify  an alternative sources file to which the new repository

	      Show all trusted software vendors and theirs keys.

       --hide-terminal
	      Do not attach to the interactive terminal of the underlying dpkg
	      call.

       --allow-unauthenticated
	      Allow to install packages which are not from a trusted vendor.

EXAMPLES
       The following command will install the package  xterm  and  remove  the
       package eterm in the same run:
	      $ aptdcon --install "xterm" --remove "eterm"

       To handle more than one package the names have to be put into quotation
       marks. The following command will install xterm and eterm:
	      $ aptdcon --install "xterm eterm"

       The  following  command	will  add  the	backport  repository  to   the
       sources.list  in a separate file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/backports.list
       :
	      $ aptdcon --sources-file backports.list \
		  --add-repostiry   "deb   http://archive.backports.org/debian
	      stable main"

DIAGNOSTICS
       By default aptdaemon logs to the syslog facility AptDaemon. Furthermore
       you can use the -d option to get additional information on the  command
       line.
