I am an Ubuntu tinkerer and in the past have installed the Server edition. One thing I remember towards the end of the install process was dpkg ran with a certain number of packages listed in a terminal to mark (with a *) to install.
Examples were DNS, LAMP, Kubuntu desktop etc etc.
I am currently running Ubuntu desktop 8.10 on a laptop machine and would like to run the dpkg package to install LAMP. I know there are other workarounds to do this (such as apt-get and aptitude) but I particularly like the way dpkg seemed to deal with it.
So, my question is, does anyone know how to invoke this installation program? I have done it before and cannot remember how!
Thanks in advance,
