It might be worth pointing out that aptitude is preferred over apt-get
in Debian :
The preferred program for package management from the command line
is aptitude, which can perform the same package management functions
as apt-get and has proven to be better at dependency resolution.
dpkg is not usable for package management and gdebi only makes
installing local deb packages easier by resolving dependencies.
