I can’t seem to access any way of getting software in debian. I did download a .deb file and sent it to the template VM to try to install and it didn’t work. Is there some GUI I can install through the command line?
I did sudo apt install flatpak while in the Debian 10 template terminal and it said I have flatpak. I shut everything down and refreshed my software but still nothing.
Thanks to whomever built Qubes and those continuing to work on this, by the way. The people who created this or worked on this are genius. I’m still learning, but am starting to understand the power.
Debian (and therefore Debian templates) are very often administered at
the command line.
The basic command is
apt, and you can use this to update, list
available packages, and install packages.
man apt will help.
There are other tools that may help -
aptitude is useful, since it
provides a useful interface to the package management system.
If you want a fully fledged GUI tool, you will want to install Synaptic
- it is well established and gives you most of the functionality that CLI
To install it,
apt install synaptic
You should probably read the documentation to understand how files are
inherited from Templates.
Incidentally, installing flatpak by itself does nothing but provide the
framework for you to install and run applications.
