I have noticed in a number of answers to questions where the use of the apt.ubuntu.com (I think this is what I recall) is employed to assist with the installation of some Ubuntu package that may not be installed by default. I think that the example I saw was http://apt.ubuntu.com/p/compizconfig-settings-manager.

  1. How does one use this apt.ubuntu.com URL to effectively communicate a package requiring installation before the given answer is able to be invoked?
  2. Is this something that folks have access to as they achieve greater reputation?

Anyone can use apt links, here you go!

  • Thanks, @Jorge. Your help is much appreciated.
