apt-file

leave a comment »

You’re trying to build a package from source and a make is complaining that it’s can’t find a certain file. Now how do you find which (source) package includes that package?

apt-file is the solution: sudo aptitude install apt-file; sudo apt-file update; apt-file search filename
