NAME
       apturl - graphical apt-protocol interpreting package installer

SYNOPSIS
       apturl [options...] <URL>

DESCRIPTION
       apturl  is  a simple graphical application that takes an URL (following
       the apt-protocol) as a command line option, parses it and  carries  out
       the  operationsthat  the URL describes (that is, it asks the user if he
       wants the indicated packages to be installed and if the answer is posi‐
       tive does so).

USAGE
       apturl  just  needs an URL conforming with the apt-protocol in order to
       work. Additionally, it recognizes the following options:

       -p, --http-proxy
	      Use the given HTTP proxy in order to download the packages.

	      flashplugin.     Available    repositories    are	   listed   in
	      /usr/share/app-install/channels/.

       apturl apt+http://launchpad.net/~mvo/ppa?package=2vcard
	      Installs 2vcard from the indicated PPA (if the  user  confirms),
	      and  afterwards  asks  if	 the PPA should be removed again or it
	      should remain enabled.
	      Warning: This is currently disabled  because  of	security  con‐
	      cerns.
