dpkg-preconfigure [options] package.deb

        dpkg-preconfigure --apt

       dpkg-preconfigure lets packages ask questions before they are
       installed.  It operates on a set of debian packages, and all packages
       that use debconf will have their config script run so they can examine
       the system and ask questions.

       -ftype, --frontend=type
           Select the frontend to use.

       -pvalue, --priority=value
           Set the lowest priority of questions you are interested in. Any
           questions with a priority below the selected priority will be
           ignored and their default answers will be used.

           Enables terse output mode. This affects only some frontends.

           Run in apt mode. It will expect to read a set of package filenames
           from stdin, rather than getting them as parameters. Typically this
           is used to make apt run dpkg-preconfigure on all packages before
           they are installed.  To do this, add something like this to

            // Pre-configure all packages before
            // they are installed.
            DPkg::Pre-Install-Pkgs {
                   "dpkg-preconfigure --apt --priority=low";

       -h, --help
           Display usage help.
