Linux Adventures With Debian

1 – Install your distro, I am using Debian NetInst and then adding in some XFCE. A nice Terminal command for some more info:

uname -a && cat /etc/*release

2 – Patch!:

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y

3 – Customize your Terminal (bash) prompt:

a. Yours:

/home/<username>/.bashrc

(Hidden Path) a.k.a.

~/.bashrc

b. The “root” account’s is located here:

/root/.bashrc

I used this: http://ezprompt.net/

4. Install some themes:

/usr/share/themes

5. More visuals: conky :

apt-get install conky-all

a. Custom conky files –

Your conky preferences are stored here:

/home/<username>/.conkyrc

Additional add-on files/scripts can be placed here (?):

/home/<username>/.conky

6. Adding/editing repos:

/etc/apt/sources.list
