The description of Debian App

This app will install Debian Buster with Xfce desktop environment.
You do not need to root your device.
You will need 1.2 Gb free on internal storage.
A mouse or stylus is highly recommended.

This app is NOT full Debian OS - it is a compatibility layer, based on PRoot, which allows you to run user-land Debian applications.
Your phone is not rooted during installation.
Running Wireshark or Aircrack-ng will fail, because they require root.
This is not an official Debian.org release.

To install packages (web browser for example), open Terminal and run commands:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install chromium


You can check full list of packages in Synaptic package manager.

chromium --disable-dev-shm-usage --no-sandbox
