Installing software

The recommended way to install new software on Debian, is to use Package Management tools to install packages from the official repositories. These repositories should contain most of the software you will want to install, allowing you not to rely on external sources.

Finding Software

There are several ways to learn what software included in Debian can cover your specific needs.

  • Use a package manager to browse software categories, sort them, and search through available packages.

  • Debtags web search provides means to search software according to their various facets (see Help page).

  • Search and browse packages on packages.debian.org. Each package may have a list of "recommended", "suggested" packages which complement the main package, and a list of packages with similar functionality. The new packages RSS feed lists packages recently added to Debian Unstable

  • other sources of ideas include this wiki, in particular through the Software portal, and other web pages, like blog posts from Planet Debian

  • snapshot.debian.org - the snapshot archive allows access to all past and current packages in the Debian archive based on dates and version numbers.

You can see full list of packages coming with Debian Stable here

Installing software form other sources

Provided you know what you are doing, you might also get software by :

  • Installing packages from unofficial/third-party repositories

  • Downloading and running ready-to-use binaries
  • Building the software from sources.
  • Deploying software in containers such as Docker

  • Using other package managers such as FlatPak, Nix/Guix...

  • writing your own! ;)
