I'm guessing from what you say here that you are unaware that aptitude
will not present a full-screen interface (neither ncurses nor slang)
if you give it any explicit command:

    $ aptitude update
    $ aptitude search bubble
    $ aptitude show morse
    $ aptitude install cowsay
    $ aptitude --help

In this, it is a replacement for apt-get.
