    Aptitude search question

    Hello all,
    when doing "aptitude search something", it searches for a match only in the packages names. Is there a way to search in the descriptions ?
    Thanks

    Code:
    apt-cache search
    does search descriptions..


    Code:
    apt-cache search "a fancy version of xeyes"
    tuxeyes - a fancy version of xeyes
