Reconfiguring an installed package in Ubuntu, Debian, and other Debian based distributions.

It's happened to me several times that I apt-get install some packages which prompt me to enter some settings in a curses interface, but I don't know which values to enter at the time, or later on realize that I need different settings than what I had originally entered.

To see the screen that you saw again, just do:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure PKG_NAME

... where PKG_NAME is the name of the package whose configuration screens you wish to see again.
