If you are a user of Debian + KDE, this post may interest you. Let's assume you already installed Debian Wheezy, If that is not the case, this guide it can serve you perfectly for it. Let's also assume that you did an installation using a Netinstall and now you have to add the packages you use the most.
You can put all these steps in a single Script. I put them separately so that they are better understood, but basically this is what I do.
Table of Contents
The first thing we do is add our repositories to the /etc/sources.list file:
# Adding our repositories echo "deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian wheezy wheezy main contrib non-free"> /etc/apt/sources.list echo "deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org/ wheezy main non-free ">> /etc/apt/sources.list
Not surprisingly, if they have a faster repository path, they just have to replace all of this. Alright, now we update:
# Updating aptitude update && aptitude upgrade -y && reboot
Installing the Desktop Environment and the packages I use
Once the PC restarts, well I install the packages I need. My graphics card is a Intel integrated so I directly install the package xserver-xorg-video-intel, but if you are new or don't know which card you have, you can simply install the package xserver-xorg-video-all.
# I install everything I need aptitude install xorg xserver-xorg-video-intel kde-full apper qtcurve kde-config-gtk-style mc ssh rcconf rsync amarok gimp pidgin inkscape quassel-kde4 smplayer -y
As you can see I install the meta-package: kde-full. In this way I will not miss anything so that KDE work as God intended, with all its tools.
Packages LibreOffice that are in the repositories of Wheezy They are not very old, but they are not the last. I prefer install LibreOffice from the binaries it offers us The Document Foundation.
Once the packages are downloaded, I unzip them and install them as follows:
# Unzip the xfv LibreOffice_4.0.2_Linux_x86-64_deb.tar.gz tar xfv LibreOffice_4.0.2_Linux_x86-64_deb_helppack_es.tar.gz tar xfv LibreOffice_4.0.2_Linux_x86-64_deb_lang instead. mv LibreOffice_22.214.171.124_Linux_x86-64_deb / DEBS / desktop-integration / *. deb LibreOffice_126.96.36.199_Linux_x86-64_deb / DEBS / mv LibreOffice_188.8.131.52_Linux_x86-64_deb_helppack_es / DEBS_inux-in184.108.40.206_en / DEBS_inux-in86_deBS / *. deb LibreOffice.

The rest of the applications
This is all the necessary I need to work. The rest I am installing as needed. Normally I have all this in a single Script, so it is much easier 😀
