apt url

Asked by Shane Fagan on 2009-07-06

Apt url links dont work in launchpad. It would be nice if they did because then instead of saying use
sudo apt-get install wine
We could go apt://wine its a lot easier.
Just an idea I hope its useful.

Shane

I have always thought of the apt url as a security vulnerability. Lets say some one made a url that launched a comand that deletes an impotent file labeled as something else.

I dont think you can uninstall programs through it. If the person has the official repos there shouldnt be any problems.

Feature requests like this are better handled as bug reports, I think.

I just created a bug report for it.
