Linux da ISO

Debian&KDE: Setting up a Debian10(codenamed:Buster) with KDE-Plasma (as DE)

A new operating system: Debian, side by side with others like Microsoft Windows.

Trick: (the ISO format was originally for CDs and DVDs, so you can write the ISO files there, in case)

BEGIN with a Download the ISO image file (for installing it)

  1. The choice of “non-free”. First thing select a “non-free” version that means that it contains also Wi-Fi drivers(firmware), useful when you want of course to use Wi-Fi.
  2. The choice of a “live ISO image” so you can try it before installing:
  3. The choice of CPU type:
  4. The choice of download type:
  5. The choice of DE (KDE Plasma), search KDE .ISO:

THEN having the ISO file “flash” it with Etcher Use Etcher to flash the chosen ISO file to USB Flash Drives or SD Cards (removable storage). This removable storage once flashed can start a live OS that can be tried and/or installed on the main storage, in a disk partition. (Be sure to understand the concept of Partition, so you preserve what you eventually want to preserve and yet find room for installing a new Operating System, O.S. like the one you already have possibly, Windows. I use both!).

FINALLY boot the computer from the flashed memory with the new OS to “try it and install it”

(you can refer to YouTube videos from now on, here I focused on 1- selecting the proper ISO file giving you also freedom of choice by means of understanding and room for further exploration especially in terms of DE, Desktop Environments like KDE Plasma and so on) 2- writing the ISO file to external disk to boot from it and try it and install it

These commands tweaked and used from a proper bash terminal allow to:
## get the ISO file by HTTP download
wget ## download the ISO file mentioned by means of “wget” command
## write the ISO file to external disk (/dev/sdb???) to start it after powering the computer of course if external disk is 1-inserted and 2-selected
sudo dd if=debian-live-10.9.0-amd64-kde+nonfree.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M status=progress && sync && echo “@@@ ALL IS OK! successful…” ## alternative to Etcher

(writing in progress)
