       dpkg-reconfigure - reconfigure an already installed package

	dpkg-reconfigure [options] packages

       dpkg-reconfigure reconfigures packages after they have already been
       installed. Pass it the names of a package or packages to reconfigure.
       It will ask configuration questions, much like when the package was
       first installed.

       If you just want to see the current configuration of a package, see
       debconf-show(1) instead.

       -ftype, --frontend=type
	   Select the frontend to use. The default frontend can be permanently
	   changed by:

	    dpkg-reconfigure debconf

	   Note that if you normally have debconf set to use the
	   noninteractive frontend, dpkg-reconfigure will use the dialog
	   frontend instead, so you actually get to reconfigure the package.

       -pvalue, --priority=value
	   Specify the minimum priority of question that will be displayed.
	   dpkg-reconfigure normally shows low priority questions no matter
	   what your default priority is. See debconf(7) for a list.

	   Use whatever the default priority of question is, instead of
	   forcing the priority to low.

       -a, --all
	   Reconfigure all installed packages that use debconf. Warning: this
	   may take a long time.

       -u, --unseen-only
	   By default, all questions are shown, even if they have already been
	   answered. If this parameter is set though, only questions that have
	   not yet been seen will be asked.

	   Force dpkg-reconfigure to reconfigure a package even if the package
	   is in an inconsistent or broken state. Use with caution.

	   Prevent dpkg-reconfigure from reloading templates. Use with
	   caution; this will prevent dpkg-reconfigure from repairing broken
	   templates databases.	 However, it may be useful in constrained
	   environments where rewriting the templates database is expensive.

       -h, --help
	   Display usage help.
