Continuing with the previous entry related to this GNU / Linux distribution call «Canaima 7», which recently launched its first public beta. Today we will explore what the installation process, which is basically the one for Debian-11, since this is the building base for this future official version.
However, the visual theme of the installer is customized, and it works without any problem. In addition, after its installation, in its version with the XFCE Desktop, we will be able to observe some post installation screenshots that we did not cover in the previous publication.
And as usual, before we dive into today's topic of the installation process of the first public beta de «Canaima 7», we will leave for those interested the following links to some previous related publications. In such a way that they can easily explore them, if necessary, after finishing reading this publication:

Canaima 7 GNU/Linux installation process
Next, we will show the step by step installation process of this striking and interesting GNU/Linux distro based on Debian-11. Installation process that, as can be seen, for now, does not vary much from the one that comes by default in Debian-11:
- Canaima 7 ISO Image boot based on XFCE
- Language selection
- Setting the computer name (host)
- Network Domain Configuration
- Configuration of the password of the administrator user (superuser) root
- System user account setup (name and password)
- Disk Partitioning
- Starting the installation of the Operating System
- Installation of GRUB in desired Partition/Disk
- End of the installation process
- Startup and exploration of the Operating System on first boot
As you can see, it's interesting. GNU/Linux distro used in Venezuela, is getting back on the road to his Debian-11 based upgrade. And with a very nice and sober appearance, both with a dark theme and a light one, and a pack of equally striking icons. Although, most likely when it is released in stable form, it will include a wide range of wallpapers (wallpapers) and many more visual themes and icons.
Rebranding of Canaima GNU/Linux
In my personal case, I have taken advantage of the availability of your «Rebranding» to lower the visual aspect pack de Canaima 7 for XFCE environment, and when applied on the Respin Miracles based MX Linux with XFCE, it has been left as follows:
Finally, as usual, we assume that the new version of the Canaima Operating System will allow to be launched more Desktop Environments, for example, MATE. Since, for now, it only allows you to choose and install two desktop environments, one intended for relatively new computers that have good resources, such as GNOME. And another intended for teams with limited resources such as XFCE. And furthermore, they will most likely include 32 Bit ISOs (i386/i586) for support for systems with very old architecture or low hardware resources (CPU/RAM).
In short, thanks to your installation process without much variation from Debian-11 native, surely many curious and passionate about the art of trying GNU / Linux Distros, from different countries and communities, will be motivated to take a look at it. And as for its current Venezuelan users or not, this future update will surely be very useful to them, since its official version was never released. version 6 based on Debian-10, and in a stable and official way, they only have in use the version 5 based on Debian-9.
