Debian 9.1 Stretch: After installation

Debian is a free operating system GNU / Linux that provides more than 51000 software packages, compiled and ready to install and use on your machine.

It is the result of Debian , and is one of the most popular Linux distributions.

Few about History

Debian as a project was started on August 16, 1993 by Ian Murdock, then a student at Purdue University. Then he wrote the Debian Manifesto which he called for the creation of a linux distribution that would be developed in an open way in the spirit of GNU / Linux. Ian Murdock chose it of the distribution combining the name of Debra's then girlfriend with his own (Ian).

Let's say Ian's operating system is based on very large and popular distributions like Ubuntu and Linux Mint. You can add to them almost other 130 Linux distributions.

Below we will see what you can do right after you install it new, stable version of Debiye 9.

“Μετά από 26 μήνες ανάπτυξης, το Debiaη project παρουσιάζει τη νέα σταθερή έκδοση 9 (code name Stretch), η οποία θα υποστηριχθεί για τα επόμενα 5 χρόνια χάρη στο συνδυασμένο έργο της ομάδας Debian Security και της μακροπρόθεσμης ς της ομάδας του Debiaη.”

Debian 9 Full DVD ISO (need only the first)

[ISO] debian-9.1.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso 2017-07-22 14:41 3.6G
[ISO] debian-9.1.0-amd64-DVD-2.iso 2017-07-22 14:41 4.4G
[ISO] debian-9.1.0-amd64-DVD-3.iso 2017-07-22 14:41 4.4G

9.1 contains all the improvements to the first version of 9, so you will not need to upgrade the packages by installing your new system.

Let's tease it a bit List

We will add “contrib” and “non-” repositories που δεν είναι 100% FOSS (Free and open-source ) according to the Debian Free Software Guidelines (DFSG).

Cont Contos contain packages that comply with the DFSG, but may depend on packages that are not free or require non-free packages for their construction.
Non-free repos contain packages that do not comply with DFSG

If you want your installation to be 100% FOSS as stated in the Debian Free Software Guidelines then do not add "contrib" & "non-free" to the source list.


We will open sources.list for editing with nano:



enter your root password and

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

You will see the image below, or rather the goal is to make the sources.list you use like the edited image:


How can this happen;

First remove the first rows showing the packet installation path from the DVD, CD.

Your nano mouse can be moved with the arrow keys…

Then, in 3, grouped links check the # second of each row to disable source repos.

On the first rows of 3 groups now add it contrib non-free in the first and the non-free in the second and third.

Save with CTRL + X, then y and then enter.

apt-get update

Give sudo in your name

apt-get install sudo
usermod -a -G sudo the_name

Add some Package Managers (although synaptic should already exist)

apt-get install synaptic apt-xapian-index gdebi gksu

Firmware Package Version

apt-get install firmware-linux

For additional drivers, see the Debian wiki

Let's add some apps

apt-get install file-roller evince geany pinta qalculate  vlc gimp shotwell gparted gnome-disk-utility libreoffice-writer libreoffice-calc libreoffice-impress

Installing it on Debian 9

Here's how this installation works because the application is i386.

dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt update
apt install libjpeg62-turbo: i386 wget gdebi-core

TeamViewer download and install

gdebi teamviewer_i386.deb

Αν τώρα θέλετε να εγκαταστήσετε άλλες εφαρμογές όπως το Skypeforlinux, Chrome, Opera κλπ, απλά κατεβάστε τα .deb files και τρέξτε τα με το gdebi, δεξί click στο , άνοιγμα με..

Good luck! The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
