HowTos for teaching and learning
All Debian packages mentioned in this section can be installed by running apt install <package> (as root).
stable/education-development is a meta package depending on a lot of programming tools. Please note that almost 2 GiB of disk space is needed if this package is installed. For more details (maybe to install only a few packages), see the Debian Edu Development packages page.
Warning: make sure you know the status of the laws about monitoring and restricting computer users' activities in your jurisdiction.
To get full Epoptes support, these steps are required.
# Run on a combi server (and on each additional ltsp server): apt update apt install epoptes ltsp-chroot -m --arch i386 apt update ltsp-chroot -m --arch i386 apt install epoptes-client ltsp-chroot -m --arch i386 apt install ssvnc ltsp-chroot -m --arch i386 sed -i 's/test -f/#test -f/' /etc/init.d/epoptes-client ltsp-chroot -m --arch i386 sed -i 's/grep -qs/#grep -qs/' /etc/init.d/epoptes-client # If diskspace matters, use 'ltsp-update-image -n' instead. ltsp-update-image

HowTos from wiki.debian.org
The HowTos from http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/HowTo/ are either user- or developer-specific. Let's move the user-specific HowTos over here (and delete them over there)! (But first ask the authors if they are happy with moving them and putting them under the GPL - see the page histories to find them.)
