After a complete disaster on a hard disk running DEBIAN 10.7, I uninstalled a part of the system and couldn't restore , I reinstalled a fresh Debian and restarted from scratch. No personal data were lost, because the documents end Download directories were on an extra partition Just a few logins from web pages I lost, but can recover them easily when needed.

My experiences on a complete new install of Debian Sofwares already installed:

  • Balena Etcher
  • Opera web brouwser
  • Midnight Commander
  • Angry IP Scanner

And a few utilities:

  • mozo
  • wget
  • git

  • Make sure the following libraries are installed.

This list is maintained in the shell script, and can be copied/pasted to most Debian based distributions. For others - make sure they are installed, or the below steps will not work. If you are not sure how to do this - consult your distribution documentation.

 apt-get -y install libglib2.0-dev libgtk2.0-dev libgtkdatabox-dev libmatio-dev libfftw3-dev libxml2 libxml2-dev bison flex libavahi-common-dev libavahi-client-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libjansson-dev
