How To Enable The Progress Fancy Bar In Apt on Ubuntu 14.04

On OMG! Ubuntu! i found an article to add a progress bar to the terminal window.

The progress bar will only work when using the apt command this means that all the apt-get commands need to be replaced with just apt. So a sudo apt-get install won’t show the progress bar but a sudo apt install will show the progress bar.

To enable the progress bar open a terminal window (press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy+paste the following lines:

sudo echo 'Dpkg::Progress-Fancy "1";' > /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99progressbar

When you’re done you can close the terminal window.
