first : create your config file

you have to choice which files/directories to monitor.
The package is delivered with 2 base config files : you can also start from another tools config (aide, tripwire)

second : initiate your base

use the -i option : -c configfile -i

third : compare it regularly

to search for unwanted changes :
use the compare (-k) or update (-u) command -c configfile -k -c configfile -u

my advice is to have an automatic job :

fourth : update it manually after any change

to know exactly what an install does :
  1. run afick in update mode
  2. install/upgrade/remove your software
  3. re-run afick in update mode
