killall in Debian?

Yesterday a friend of mine (centos fan) asked me: “I can’t find the killall command on Debian. How can I install it?" This short post is the answer to this simple question, but for someone not familiar with debian/ubuntu this might be useful.

The answer is simple: install the psmisc package:

aptitude install psmisc

Besides killall this contains also the fuser and pstree commands.
