NEWS 221115 about DebEX KDE Plasma - a Refracta Build

I have made a new extra version of DebEX KDE Plasma Live DVD - uefi. It's a pure Debian 12 (Sid/upcoming Bookworm) system. (unstable). I.e.: There are no Ubuntu or Kubuntu elements involved. DebEX KDE Plasma Sid uses the KDE Plasma Desktop 5.26.3 - latest version, released 221108 - as Desktop environment. Kernel 6.0.6-amd64-exton-rt14 is used. All included packages have been updated to the latest version as of 221115. DebEX KDE Build 221115 works in the same way as DebEX KDE Build 220926 - see below. I have kept Build 220926 since it is based on Debian 11 (stable). In Build 221115 I have added LURE (Linux User REpository). "LURE is intended to bring the AUR to all distros. It is currently in an alpha state and may not be stable. It can download a repository, build packages in it using a bash script similar to PKGBUILD, and then install them using your system package manager". Read about how to use LURE:

VirtualBox Guest Additions and VMware Tools are pre-installed, which mean that you can run DebEX KDE in full screen – see the screenshots below.

1. Using LURE to install Thunar:
2. The Desktop for the ordinary user user:
3. The Desktop for root:
4. Running in full screen in VirtualBox:
5. Running in full screen in VMware:

DebEX is a pure Debian system. I.e. no traces of Ubuntu, Kubuntu etc. New releases of Ubuntu are always based on Debian (sid/unstable). So is DebEX.
