Posted 12-07-2014 at 12:46 PM by jere21

My setup/configuration changes and wishlist for Gnome 3 in Debian (Jessie comes with Gnome 3.14):

Install
  • gnome-shell-extensions (although Gnome recommends to only install extensions from https://extensions.gnome.org, but no packaged extensions.)
  • gnome-system-tools (many things, e.g. GUI for user and groups management. IMO this package should be suggested or recommended by some other gnome package more prominently (currently only gnome-nettool suggests it and lxde (!) recommends

Grub2

  1. Make your changes in /etc/default/grub:
    • Add kernel options to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT. In my current case:
      Code:
      GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet video.use_native_backlight=0"
    • Always boot the last selected kernel (instead of the first one):
      Code:
      GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
      GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=true
    • Disable grub showing up at all per default (hold "shift" to show it anyway):
      Code:
      GRUB_TIMEOUT=0
  2. Apply your changes
    Code:
    sudo update-grub

I've installed the following packages because they sound interesting for the task. For now of all of them I just use git git-annex.

Code:
ii bup        0.25-1     amd64 highly efficient file backup system based on git
ii git-annex  5.20140927 amd64 manage files with git, without checking their contents into git
