Debian for Humans

Tanglu is a project to provide the Debian operating system easily installable and usable even by non-technical computing device users.

The project aims at developing the necessary usability improvements within the debian project, being one of the DebianPureBlends. Desireable goals include:

  • Working with the DebianDesktop project to obsoleting the ?DebianDesktopHowto

Tanglu's derivative distribution aims at providing working solutions for the requirements of its users.

The goal is to have the Tanglu release used together with Debian, where DebianStable can run on servers and the Tanglu releases of DebianTesting provide newer packages for end-user devices. Tanglu can also be used to distribute and test new upstream software by Tanglu users while Debian is in freeze.

In short, you can think of Tanglu as a community-maintained Ubuntu.

See original announcement.


The Tanglu distribution was started in april 2013 by setting up ?www.tanglu.org repositories and beginning work on a Live CD.

Ideas for developments

  • Make rich descriptions for popular applications available right in the package manager. (For example communitity maintained wikis such as ?wiki.ubuntuusers.de
