installing apt-fast from the repository with apt-get

apt-fast is a nifty tool that can be used to speed up installation of software packages on Debian GNU/Linux based systems (ie using .deb). This is a script that acts as a wrapper around apt-get apt aptitude etc.

Quick steps for the installation


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:saiarcot895/myppa


Press enter to accept the repository

apt-get update ; apt-get -y install apt-fast


Choose the the package manager tool that you want to use from the ‘dialogue’ as shown below. Normally we go for apt-get



You can keep the number of downloads per server at the default value.
