Now, we must convince Congress to stop the FCC. Can you display an alert?

To add a fancy progress bar to the apt command on Linux, edit this file: /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99progressbar and add the line below.

Dpkg::Progress-Fancy "1";

Save the file and when you next install software with the apt command, you will get a fancy progress bar at the bottom of the screen.

This is a very nice addition to any Debian based Linux system.
