DebEX KDE (Debian Buster/Sid) – Build 171023 – with KDE Plasma 5.37, Refracta tools, Nvidia 384.90 and kernel 4.13.0-16-exton

NEWS 171023 about DebEX KDE Plasma –  a Refracta Build 171023
I have made a new version of DebEX KDE Plasma Live DVD. It replaces version 161001. It’s a pure Debian 10 system. (Buster/Sid). I.e.: There are no Ubuntu or Kubuntu elements involved. DebEX KDE Plasma uses KDE 4.16 and KDE Plasma Desktop 5:37 as Desktop environment. It uses kernel 4.13.0-16-exton – (4.13.4). I have installed Nvidia’s proprietary graphic driver 384.90. I have replaced Google Chrome with Firefox 56.0 (for Netflix). I’ve also added SMPlayer – an alternative to Vlc. (SMPlayer is a free media player for Windows and Linux with built-in codecs that can play virtually all video and audio formats. It doesn’t need any external codecs. Just install SMPlayer and you’ll be able to play all formats without the hassle to find and install codec packs). All other installed packages have also been updated to the latest version of 171023. Study the full package list.

Important about Refracta
You can use the Refracta tools (pre-installed) to create your own installable Debian Live DVD once you have installed DebEX KDE to hard drive. I mean change everything and then create a whole new Debian live system. When you start Refracta it will look like this. You don’t even have to install DebEX to hard drive before you can use the Refracta tools. If you have plenty of RAM you can create a new (your own!) Debian 10/9 system while running DebEX from a DVD or a USB stick. Please note that the whole Refracta process (creating your new ISO) will only take 10 – 30 min! You’ll find the ISO in /home/snapshots.

  1. Softpedia 171027: DebEX KDE Plasma Is a Pure Debian GNU/Linux 10 “Buster” Distro with Linux 4.13

    “DebEX KDE Plasma Build 171023 is here to replace last year’s Build 161001, bringing components from both the Debian Sid and Debian Testing repositories, which means that it doesn’t contain any packages from Ubuntu, nor Kubuntu operating systems, thus making it a bleeding-edge GNU/Linux distribution.

    Powered by the Linux 4.13.4 kernel, DebEX KDE Plasma is a pure Debian GNU/Linux 10 “Buster” distro that ships with both KDE 4.16 and KDE Plasma 5 desktop environments. It comes pre-installed with the Nvidia 384.90 proprietary graphics driver, the Mozilla Firefox 56.0 web browser, and SMPlayer video player.
    “Ships with Refracta Tools so you can make your own Live ISO”

    The best thing about the new DebEX KDE Plasma release is that it includes Refracta Tools, which allows users to create their own live and installable ISO images based on Debian GNU/Linux 9 “Stretch” / 10 “Buster” or DebEX KDE Plasma. You don’t even have to install the distro to use Refracta Tools, if you have enough system memory”.
