how to replace the sudo apt-get install command with sagi

Installing applications with terminal commads is pretty easy and often faster than opening up the software center and searching the application in there.
sudo apt-get install $PACKETNAME
The only hard part is typing sudo apt-get install again and again ;)
If you want to replace sudo apt-get install with a shorter command like "sagi" you have got to download  this script . Now open up a terminal and move the script to your home folder and make it invisible using this command.
mv ~/downloads/ ~/.sagi
Open the file ~/.bashrc with this command:

gedit ~/.bashrc

Add this line to the end of the file:
source ~/.sagi

Restart the terminal and you are good to go! You can now use sagi instead of sudo apt-get install, with tab-completion for package names!

alias sag="sudo apt-get"
alias sagi="sudo apt-get install"
alias saguu="sudo apt-get update;sudo apt-get upgrade"

a strip of my .zshrc ;)
zsh + apt-get = no need for your script :)
but nice article! bookmarked it in case of switching back to bash... ;)

But tab-completion does not work with the alias, does it? If you can tab complete the packages, your method would be superior of course!
