Oh, thank you. ~ is a sh thing, of course. However, now it says 

frank@alhambra:~$ debconf-show tetex
Configuration database "frankdb" was not initialized.

Probably it would be better if you point me to some documentation so
that I don't have to bother the list. There no occurence of "init" in
debconf(7), debconf-devel(7) or debconf-show(1).

Thank you,
