LibreOffice installation on Linux


Full installation

  • Performing a full installation is the recommended way to install LibreOffice in Linux. One would do this by installing the LibreOffice metapackage via a terminal:

    sudo apt-get install libreoffice

Selective installation

  • While this isn’t recommended, one may install a subset of the full installation. An example package set:
    • libreoffice-writer: Word processor
    • libreoffice-calc: Spreadsheet
    • libreoffice-impress: Presentation
    • libreoffice-draw: Drawing
    • libreoffice-base: Database
    • libreoffice-math: Equation editor
    • libreoffice-filter-mobiledev: Mobile Devices filters
    • libreoffice-filter-binfilter: legacy filters (e.g. StarOffice 5.2)

Pale moon – lighter Mozilla Firefox

Pale moon – lighter Mozilla Firefox


Pale Moon is an Open Source Goanna-based web browser completely built from its own, independently developed source that was forked off from Firefox/Mozilla code a number of years ago, and focuses on efficiency and ease of use by carefully selecting features and optimizations to improve the browser’s stability and user experience, while offering full customization and a growing collection of extensions and themes to make the browser truly your own.

This browser, even though fairly close to Gecko-based browsers like Mozilla Firefox in how it works, is based on a different layout engine and offers a different set of features. It aims to provide close adherence to official web standards and specifications in its implementation (with minimal compromise), and purposefully excludes a number of features to strike a good balance between general use, performance, and technical advancements on the Web.

Install in Debian 9.0

Source: project=home:stevenpusser&package=palemoon

For Debian 9.0 run the following as root:

echo 'deb /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/palemoon.list 
apt-get update
apt-get install palemoon

You can add the repository key to apt. Keep in mind that the owner of the key may distribute updates, packages and repositories that your system will trust (more information). To add the key, run:

wget -nv -O Release.key
apt-key add - < Release.key
apt-get update

Anbox: Android in a box for Linux

Anbox puts the Android operating system into a container, abstracts hardware access and integrates core system services into a GNU/Linux system. Every Android application will be integrated with your operating system like any other native application.

To achieve our goal we use standard Linux technologies like containers (LXC) to separate the Android operating system from the host. Any Android version is suitable for this approach and we try to keep up with the latest available version from the Android Open Source Project.



Open Source

The whole source code is available as Open Source and licensed under the terms of the Apache and GPLv3 license.


No limits

As Anbox is running an entire Android system, conceptually any application can run.



Anbox puts Android apps into a tightly sealed box without direct access to hardware or your data.



Runs Android without hardware virtualization and seamlessly bridges over hardware acceleration features.



Tightly integrated with the host operating system to offer a rich feature set.



Anbox scales across different form factors similar like Android does. It works on a laptop and a mobile phone.

Install Brave Browser via Snap

Linux install instructions

NOTE: If you experience a problem with dependencies while installing, you may want to try installing git using the package manager for your distro.

NOTE: If Brave does not start and shows an error about sandboxing, you may need to enable userns in your kernel. Running with the --no-sandbox flag is NOT recommended!


According to

Snaps are quick to install, easy to create, safe to run, and they update automatically and transactionally so your app is always fresh and never broken.

Installation instructions for snapd can be found here. Once snapd is installed, installing Brave looks like this:

snap install brave –beta


Install snapd on Debian

On Debian snapd is available as part of the testing (currently ‘stretch’) and unstable (‘sid’) versions. It is currently not available in any stable version but will be soon.

Note: Rasbian is currently not supported due to missing features in the kernel shipped.

Generally you can install snapd on a Debian distribution via:

$ sudo apt install snapd

Afterwards everything is setup to get you started with snaps.
