LXDE Missing Software
I am running Debian, and have loaded up LXDE from terminal. I can get into it using GDM. The problem is that I feel it does not have the fundamental software. I did get Iceweasel up, as it was missing a browser, that much I knew. However, after downloading, a zip file for example, there is nothing assigned to it to open. The list is blank. Is there some fundamental software I should know about?
I'm new to Debian, starting with the bare minimum and apt-get everything.
Mind you, I've not used straight Debian in a long time but you might get things going by just doing as su:
That should install the synaptic package manager if it isn't already installed and you can go from there. Open with:
apt-get install synaptic
Hope this helps. :)
Oh, thank you, Dan.
You're more into Mint?
Make sure to edit your /etc/apt/sources.list file to include any repos that you're looking for.
Just for example adding this to your sources.list file:
Would let you install Flash.
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main
I think I have them as apt, not sure. I'll look into that..
I run LXDE on AntiX core install with Debian testing repositories. PCManFM is siamesed into LXDE on a Debian LXDE install.
For extraction on right click in pcmanfm. Install xarchiver or file-roller
My AntiX LXDE thread
harry@bikertest3:~$ apt-cache policy xarchiver
