Default reinstall configuration files

How to reinstall the configuration files for a package without running
the purge command? (because of dependencies)


Thanks in advance!
Panayiotis

Run:

aptitude -o DPkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" reinstall <pkg>

and (intentionally?) deleted configuration files will be installed
again.

Kind regards

It is currently not possible to reinstall these from the packages, but
the upcoming dpkg 1.15.8 has a "--force-confask" option which will allow
that. See bug #102609 for details.
