Adept Manager is a graphical user interface to the Advanced Packaging Tool for KDE. It was developed by Peter Ročkai and was sponsored by Canonical Ltd. through the Kubuntu project, where it replaced the Kynaptic package manager.

Adept 2 is for KDE 3. The last stable release was 2.1.3. Adept 3 is for KDE 4. At the end of 2008 development was discontinued, except for bug fixes, as Adept was replaced by KPackageKit for Kubuntu's 9.04 release.[1] Adept, however, can still be installed from the Debian Testing, Debian Unstable and Ubuntu 9.04, 9.10, 10.04 and 10.10 repositories. Bug fixes are still done to Adept, but major work has been discontinued.

Features of Adept include:

  • Downloading and installing software using repositories
  • Uninstalling software
  • Updating software and the operating system
