Apt-Fast, an important command for Ubuntu users

As time goes on, the novice ubuntu user quickly acquires the experience and skill needed to be an advanced user. These types of users are characterized by using the terminal among other things for the installation of programs. In this case it is famous to use the apt-get command although there are other commands that will cause us to install programs and applications in a matter of seconds.

In this case I’m talking about the application Apt-fast, an improved fork of apt-get system which will make the facilities super fast. To give you an idea, when with apt-get a program drops to 32 kbps, with apt-fast the same program drops to 850 kbps. These results are impressive and real as the creator of apt-fast, Matt Parnell, Uses download managers like aria2c to make simultaneous connections.

Unfortunately apt-fast is not in the official Ubuntu repositories (for now) so for its installation we have to use external repositories. In any case, the operation of apt-fast is the same as that of apt-get and its setup is very simple, The only downside is that we have to be careful so that when you make any download do not ask us if we really want to download or not this package.

Apt-fast installation

The installation of apt-fast must be done with a terminal as it is not in the official repositories. Once the terminal is open, write the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:apt-fast/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install apt-fast

And after that the installation will start and then the setup wizard will jump. It is very important to pay attention to the latter. Once configured and installed to be able to install a package we must use the command apt-fast install instead of the traditional system.


Many users warn that apt-fast has become a very important tool in their Ubuntu, something that really speeds up the installation process and may be interesting to have or at least try in our Ubuntu Don’t you believe?
