Gnome Package Finder is a GUI (graphical user interface) wrapper for apt-cache and apt-file commands. It allows quick search through debian packages database for package name, description or file name inside the package.
It shows common info about the package, its dependencies or list of files the package would install.
This utility is for Debian-based systems (Ubuntu) and its binary is compiled for GTK2.
Type what you want to find in the "Search for package or file" field and press Enter or click Find.
After you have got the list of matching packages, select the package you wish to see info about and either:
or double-click on it
or right-click and choose an option.
