How to Download a source package
Sources are normally not installed. You can only install them if you know the package name.
How to find the name of the source package
A source package could generate many .debs. To know the source package name, see the Source: field in the output of
apt-cache show package_name
Sometimes the SOURCE: field is not present, then you can check using:
apt-cache showsrc package_name
Downloading with apt-get source
One way to obtain source packages is with
apt-get source <package name>
A source package is downloaded in the current directory and is not installed (it will not appear in the installed package list), you need not be root to use apt-get source.
