       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)

       -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

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

       -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.
