Very strange. apt-get is not deprecated and it should be in /usr/bin.

In Debian, for every daemon or service there is an init script in
/etc/init.d. All of them take at least the arguments 'start' and 'stop'.
So you can just say '/etc/init.d/samba start' (or 'restart' when it is
already running) and Samba should run fine.

This should be the default behaviour. If you are unsure, run
'update-rc.d samba defaults'to restore the default symlinks to the init
script in the directories for all the runlevels (/etc/rcX.d/).

It is. All of the fancy GUI programs rely on apt-get so it still has to
be there.

I have been manipulated and permanently distorted.
