You have at least one of three packages installed:-
"apt-file update" creates a local database of files and the paths they
are installed to by packages in repositories listed in "grep "^[^#]"
By filtering the output of "apt-file search" you can determine what
packages could have installed those files (knowing that many packages
stow default configuration and directory structure in /usr/lib/$Packagename)
for i in Defaults Library Services;do apt-file search GNUstep/$i;done
a little text processing will give you a short list of packagenames:-
for i in Defaults Library Services;do apt-file search
GNUstep/$i;done|cut -f1 -d:|sort -u
which you can convert into a result that displays the relevant man file
- which will display the answer to your first question (the latter
question is one you'd answer afterwards):-
for i in $(for i in Defaults Library Services;do apt-file search
GNUstep/$i;done|cut -f1 -d:|sort -u);do man -k $i;done
A: Because we read from top to bottom, left to right.
Q: Why should I start my reply below the quoted text?
A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: The lost context.
Q: What makes top-posted replies harder to read than bottom-posted?
Q: Should I trim down the quoted part of an email to which I'm reply
