newt 0.52.21-5ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


newt (0.52.21-5ubuntu1) jammy; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian unstable (LP: #1958502). Remaining changes:
    - Install/remove alternatives for the ubuntu palette.
    - Don't install python-newt example files.
    - Add correct build-dependencies on python3-all-dbg and
      libpython3-all-dbg, needed due to debian/patches/snack.patch.
    - Revert Debian's dropping of /etc/newt/palette.original, used as an
      alternative in Ubuntu.
    - Remove libnewt0.52.preinst altogether, which contains destructive
      operations with none of the appropriate version guards.
    - Drop call to update-alternatives --auto in our postinst, which would
      clobber the user's settings.

 which use newt. Newt is a windowing toolkit for text mode, which provides
 many widgets and stackable windows.

 This is used to develop subsets of the newt shared libraries for use on
 custom installation floppies and in embedded systems. Unless you're

libnewt0.52: Not Erik's Windowing Toolkit - text mode windowing with slang

 Newt is a windowing toolkit for text mode built from the slang library.
 It allows color text mode applications to easily use stackable windows,
 push buttons, check boxes, radio buttons, lists, entry fields, labels,
 and displayable text. Scrollbars are supported, and forms may be nested
 to provide extra functionality. This package contains the shared library
 for programs that have been built with newt.

whiptail: Displays user-friendly dialog boxes from shell scripts

 the user in a much friendlier manner.
