XFCE include Terminal which should already been installed.
XFCE include Mousepad which is basically Windows’s Notepad. You’ll have to install it :
apt-get install mousepad
There is also XFCE tools to help you deal with archives. There is Squeeze which is an archive manager and there’s also a plugin to Thunar (Xfce file manager) which bring a helpful contextual menu to compress/uncompress. The following command install both tools :
apt-get install thunar-archive-plugin
XFCE include Ristretto which is very light image viewer. You’ll have to install it :
apt-get install ristretto
If you need to modify images (not only view them), you’ll need GIMP :
apt-get install gimp
Burn CD / DVD
We’ll use yet another XFCE tool : Xfburn.
apt-get install xfburn
I prefer gFTP because it’s very easy and it has almost no dependancies.
apt-get install gftp
Of course Firefox which is called IceWeasel in Debian (change fr with your language) :
apt-get install iceweasel iceweasel-l10n-fr
Before there was a flashplugin-nonfree package. I didn’t manage to find it in Lenny so I installed it with the official installer from adobe :
su - cd wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz tar xvzf install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz cd install_flash_player_9_linux ./flashplayer-installer
The installation is made by root (su -) so it will make a global install. The only question the installer will ask is :
Please enter the installation path of the Mozilla, Netscape, or Opera browser (i.e., /usr/lib/mozilla):
You’ll have to answer : /usr/lib/iceweasel
apt-get install deluge-torrent
There are two choices.
Use xfmedia based on xine :
apt-get install xfmedia
There is no all-in-one package for debian so you’ll have to install it the hard way :
- update your apt sources to include non-free packages. Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list so it looks like that :
# # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux testing _Lenny_ - Official Beta i386 NETINST Binary-1 20080705-09:34]/ lenny main #deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux testing _Lenny_ - Official Beta i386 NETINST Binary-1 20080705-09:34]/ lenny main deb http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free deb-src http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ lenny main deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib non-free deb-src http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main
- follow this howto for Ubuntu
I personally like galculator.
apt-get install galculator
