After updating apt database, You can install tefd using apt by running the following command:

sudo apt -y install tcm

Install tefd using aptitude

If you want to follow this method, you might need to install aptitude first since aptitude is usually not installed by default on Kali Linux. Update apt database with aptitude using the following command.

sudo aptitude update

After updating aptitude database, You can install tefd by running the following command:

sudo aptitude -y install tcm

How to upgrade (update) a single package tefd using apt-get?

First, you will need to update packages index. Run update command as usual:

sudo apt-get update

Next, to upgrade only the tefd, e.g. single package, you should use the following format with the apt-get command/apt command:

sudo apt-get --only-upgrade install tcm

Note that this command will not install any new packages! If you wish to install the package if it doesn't exist you may leave out --only-upgrade part.

To uninstall only the tefd package you can execute the following command:

sudo apt-get remove tcm

Uninstall tefd and all its dependencies

To uninstall tefd and its dependencies that are no longer needed by Kali Linux, you can use the command below:

sudo apt-get -y autoremove tcm

Remove tefd with all configurations and data

To remove tefd configuration and data from your system you can run the following purge command:

sudo apt-get -y purge tcm

Remove tefd completely (configurations, data and all of its dependencies)

And lastly, you can run the next command to remove absolutely everything related to tefd package, e.g.: configurations, data and all of its dependencies. Just use this command:

sudo apt-get -y autoremove --purge tcm

Extra info and code examples

The Toolkit for Conceptual Modeling is a collection of software tools to present conceptual models of software systems in the form of diagrams, tables, trees, and the like. A conceptual model of a system is a structure used to represent the requirements or architecture of the system. TCM is meant to be used for specifying and maintaining requirements for desired systems, in which a number of techniques and heuristics for problem analysis, function refinement, behavior specification, and architecture specification are used. TCM takes the form of a suite of graphical editors that can be used in these design tasks. These editors can be categorized into: * Generic editors for generic diagrams, generic tables and generic trees. * Structured Analysis (SA) editors for entity-relationship diagrams, data and event flow diagrams, state transition diagrams, function refinement trees, transaction-use tables and function-entity type tables. * Unified Modeling Language (UML) editors for static structure diagrams, use-case diagrams, activity diagrams, state charts, message sequence diagrams, collaboration diagrams, component diagrams and deployment diagrams (only the first three UML and last two editors are functional at this moment). * Miscellaneous editors such as for JSD (process structure and network diagrams), recursive process graphs and transaction decomposition tables. TCM supports constraint checking for single documents (e.g. name duplication and cycles in is-a relationships). TCM distinguishes built-in constraints (of which a violation cannot even be attempted) from immediate constraints (of which an attempted violation is immediately prevented) and soft constraints (against which the editor provides a warning when it checks the drawing). TCM is planned to support hierarchic graphs, so that it can handle for example hierarchic statecharts. Features to be added later include constraint checking across documents and executable models.
