5Synaptic works on quite a few distributions. To make support for the
6various task systems easy synaptic needs a helper application called
7"tasksel" (or any other helper that can be speficified with
8"-o Synaptic::taskHelperProg=prog"). It has to support the following
9commands:
10
11--list-tasks: returns a list of the format
12              "$installed $taskname\t$task-short-description"
13              where $installed can be 'i' (installed) or 'u' (uninstalled)
14
15--task-packages $task: list the packages included in the given task
16                       this option can be used more than once for
17                       different tasks
18
19--task-desc $task: print a long description about the given task

54This task provides basic "desktop" software, including a variety of session managers, file managers and web browsers. It incorporates both the GNOME and KDE desktops, and provides a display manager which lets the user choose between the two.
