Does package manager tools (Synaptic, Aptitude...) support License agreement ?

Asked by Testing Tigerwolf on 2009-10-10

I have had the Bug #350972 "Kpackagekit not able to install sun java due to license agreement", on my machine fitted with Kubuntu 9.04 RC.

Does this problem occures only for java license agreement, or does KPackageKit crash systematically du to a license agreement ? What about other package manager tools (Synaptic, Aptitude, ...) ? Are they support icense agreement ?

Installing Java using aptitude, apt-get or Synaptic, etc. provide functionality to pop up a graphical license agreement during the installation. Java install works with these when you accept the agreement.
