Debian 12 | The good, the bad and the ugly


Debian is an old linux distribution dated back from 1993. For the installation of debian, the major installation method is through a net iso.

There are other live images available with different desktop environment of your liking with a modern calamares installer. The one I chose is LXQT version on the following link

To improve debain experience and compensate for old software packages, flatpak comes to the rescue.

To install flatpak on LXQT with a gui, we need the following code to be inserted

sudo apt install flatpak

enable the flathub repo

sudo flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub

install gnome-software with its flatpak plugin

sudo apt install gnome-software-plugin-flatpak

Then just reboot and enable the flatpaks from within the gnome-software app.
