The Perfect Desktop – Mepis 11

This tutorial shows how you can set up a Mepis 11 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge. Mepis is a Linux distribution based on Debian Stable.

I want to say first that this is not the only way of setting up such a system. There are many ways of achieving this goal but this is the way I take. I do not issue any guarantee that this will work for you!


1 Preliminary Note

To fully replace a Windows desktop, I want the Mepis desktop to have the following software installed:


  • The GIMP – free software replacement for Adobe Photoshop
  • F-Spot – full-featured personal photo management application for the GNOME desktop
  • Google Picasa – application for organizing and editing digital photos


  • Firefox/Iceweasel
  • Opera
  • Google Chrome
  • Flash Player 10
  • FileZilla – multithreaded FTP client
  • Thunderbird/Icedove – email and news client
  • Evolution – combines e-mail, calendar, address book, and task list management functions
  • aMule – P2P file sharing application
  • Transmission BitTorrent Client – BitTorrent client
  • Azureus/Vuze – Java Bittorrent client
  • Empathy IM Client – multi-platform instant messaging client
  • Skype
  • Google Earth
  • Xchat IRC – IRC client


  • OpenOffice Writer – replacement for Microsoft Word
  • OpenOffice Calc – replacement for Microsoft Excel
  • Adobe Reader
  • GnuCash – double-entry book-keeping personal finance system, similar to Quicken
  • Scribus – open source desktop publishing (DTP) application
  • gedit – text editor

Sound & Video:

  • Amarok – audio player
  • Audacity – free, open source, cross platform digital audio editor
  • Banshee – audio player, can encode/decode various formats and synchronize music with Apple iPods
  • MPlayer – media player (video/audio), supports WMA
  • Rhythmbox Music Player – audio player, similar to Apple’s iTunes, with support for iPods
  • gtkPod – software similar to Apple’s iTunes, supports iPod, iPod nano, iPod shuffle, iPod photo, and iPod mini
  • XMMS – audio player similar to Winamp
  • dvd::rip – full featured DVD copy program
  • Kino – free digital video editor
  • Sound Juicer CD Extractor – CD ripping tool, supports various audio codecs
  • VLC Media Player – media player (video/audio)
  • Real Player (available only for Debian Squeeze i386, not x86_64)
  • Totem – media player (video/audio)
  • Xine – media player, supports various formats; can play DVDs
  • Brasero – CD/DVD burning program
  • K3B – CD/DVD burning program
  • Multimedia Codecs


  • KompoZer – WYSIWYG HTML editor, similar to Macromedia Dreamweaver, but not as feature-rich (yet)
  • Bluefish – text editor, suitable for many programming and markup languages
  • Eclipse – Extensible Tool Platform and Java IDE


  • VirtualBox OSE – lets you run your old Windows desktop as a virtual machine under your Linux desktop, so you don’t have to entirely abandon Windows
  • TrueType fonts
  • Java
  • Read-/Write support for NTFS partitions

Lots of our desired applications are available in the Debian repositories.

As you might have noticed, a few applications are redundant, for example there are two CD/DVD burning applications in my list (Brasero, K3B). If you know which one you like best, you obviously don’t need to install the other applications, however if you like choice, then of course you can install both. The same goes for music players like Amarok, Banshee, Rhythmbox, XMMS or browsers (Firefox/Iceweasel, Opera, Google Chrome).

I will use the username ctest in this tutorial, and I will download all necessary files to ctest‘s Downloads directory which is equivalent to the directory /home/ctest/Downloads. If you use another username (which you most probably do ;-)), please replace ctest with your own username. So when I use a command like

cd /home/ctest/Downloads

you must replace ctest.


2 Installing The Base System

Download the Mepis iso image (available here: (i386) or (x86_64)) , burn it onto a CD, and boot your computer from it. Select default:


Log in as the premade demo user or root, the passwords are given at the top of the screen. Mepis Live mode will then be started:



Click on MEPIS install and give the root password if you are logged in as demo:


Check the checkbox to agree with the terms of use and click on Next:


Configure your installation now. Choose the hard drive and the partitioning scheme you want to use and click on Next:


A dialogue will pop up if you choose to format your entire disk in order to use it for Mepis. Click Yes if you want to proceed:


Select your boot method next. If you do not know what the options mean, leave them as they are and click on Next:


Click Yes to proceed and confirm with Ok after the installation of GRUB is done:



Configure your computer’s data now. Give it a name, a domain and a workgroup. When you are done, click on Next:


Configure youre local settings like keyboard layout and time zone afterwards, then click on Next:


Select your username now and don’t forget to replace mine with yours in the steps to come. Then click on Next:


You are done with the configuration of Mepis now. Click on Yes to reboot your system and log in with your login data afterwards:




The base system is now ready to be used.

3 Update The System

Before you install any new software it is always a good idea to update your system and all exisiting packages. To do that, log in as root first. Open a Terminal (Console) from the main menu and enter:


Now you are logged in as root user. Use the following commands afterwards and cofirm with the given key to proceed:

apt-get update

apt-get upgrade


4 Inventory Of What We Have So Far

Now let’s browse all menus to see which of our needed applications are already installed:


You should find the following situation ([x] marks an application that is already installed, where [ ] is an application that is missing):

[x] The GIMP
[ ] F-Spot
[ ] Picasa

[x] Firefox/Iceweasel
[ ] Opera
[ ] Google Chrome
[x] Flash Player 10
[ ] FileZilla
[ ] Thunderbird/Icedove
[ ] Evolution
[ ] aMule
[ ] Transmission BitTorrent Client
[ ] Azureus/Vuze
[ ] Empathy IM Client
[ ] Skype

[ ] Google Earth
[ ] Xchat IRC

[x] OpenOffice Writer
[x] OpenOffice Calc
[ ] Adobe Reader
[ ] GnuCash
[ ] Scribus
[ ] gedit

Sound & Video:
[x] Amarok
[ ] Audacity
[ ] Banshee
[ ] MPlayer
[ ] Rhythmbox Music Player
[ ] gtkPod
[ ] XMMS
[ ] dvd::rip
[ ] Kino
[ ] Sound Juicer CD Extractor
[x] VLC Media Player
[ ] Real Player
(i386 only)
[ ] Totem
[ ] Xine
[x] Brasero
[ ] K3B
[ ] Multimedia-Codecs

[ ] KompoZer
[ ] Bluefish
[ ] Eclipse

[ ] VirtualBox
[ ] TrueType fonts
[ ] Java
[x] Read/Write support for NTFS partitions

So some applications are already on the system. NTFS read-/write support is enabled by default on Mepis.


5 Configure Additional Repositories

Some packages like the Adobe Reader are not available in the standard Debian repositories. The easiest way to make such packages available to your system is to add the Debian-Multimedia, Opera and Google.

First, get back to the terminal and make sure you are logged in as root by entering


if you are not root yet and download gedit:

apt-get install gedit

Edit /etc/apt/sources.list afterwards:

gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Add contrib and non-free to the official Squeeze repositories that are already in the file, e.g. as follows…

deb squeeze main contrib non-free
deb-src squeeze main contrib non-free

deb squeeze/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src squeeze/updates main contrib non-free

deb squeeze-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src squeeze-updates main contrib non-free

… and add the Debian-Multimedia (you can find a mirror close to you here), Opera and Google repositories, e.g. like this:

deb squeeze main non-free
deb-src squeeze main non-free
deb squeeze non-free
deb stable main

Then install the keys for the added repositories:

dpkg -i debian-multimedia-keyring_2010.12.26_all.deb

wget -O – | apt-key add –

wget -q -O – | apt-key add –

Finally update your package-list:

apt-get update

6 Install Additional Software

To install additional applications, open the Synaptic Package Manager (System > Synaptic Package Manager):


In the Synaptic Package Manager, we can install additional software. You can use the Quick search field to find packages:


Select the following packages for installation (* is a wildcard; e.g. gstreamer0.10* means all packages that start with gstreamer0.10):

  • f-spot
  • flashplugin-nonfree
  • filezilla
  • icedove
  • amule
  • amule-utils-gui
  • vuze/azureus
  • xchat
  • xchat-gnome

  • w64codecs/w32codecs
  • skype
  • kompozer
  • virtualbox-ose
  • brasero
  • totem
  • sound-juicer
  • gedit
  • rhythmbox

There are also lots of other applications available that you can install as well if you like.

To select a package for installation, click on the checkbox in front of it and select Mark for Installation from the menu that comes up:


If a package has a dependency that needs to be satisfied, a window will pop up. Accept the dependencies by clicking on Mark:


After you’ve selected the desired packages, click on the Apply button:


Confirm your selection by clicking on Apply:


The packages are now being downloaded from the repositories and installed. This can take a few minutes, so please be patient:


After all packages have been installed, click on Close:


You can leave the Synaptic Package Manager afterwards.


7 Flash Player

We’ve just installed the Adobe Flash Player 10 in the previous chapter (from Debian-Multimedia). If you type about:plugins in the Firefox/Iceweasel address bar, you should now see it enabled.


8 TrueType Fonts

To check if the TrueType fonts have been installed correctly, open a word processor like OpenOffice. You should now find your new Windows fonts there.


9 Google Earth

In chapter 6, we have installed the package googleearth-package which is a utility to automatically build a Debian package of Google Earth. This means, Google Earth is not yet installed; we have to first build a .deb package of it with the help of googleearth-package, and then install the .deb package.

Open a terminal (System > Terminal) and become root:


Now you can build the Google Earth .deb package as follows:

make-googleearth-package –force


Package: googleearth
Section: non-free/science
Priority: optional
Maintainer: <root@mepis1>
Architecture: amd64
Depends: ttf-dejavu | ttf-bitstream-vera | msttcorefonts, lsb-core, libqtcore4, libgl1-mesa-glx, ia32-libs (>= 20110609), lib32gcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1), lib32stdc++6 (>= 4.1.1), lib32z1 (>= 1:1.1.4), libc6-i386 (>= 2.0), libc6-i386 (>= 2.1.3), libc6-i386 (>= 2.2), libc6-i386 (>= 2.3), libc6-i386 (>= 2.3.2), libc6-i386 (>= 2.4) , ia32-libs-gtk

Description: Google Earth, a 3D map/planet viewer
Package built with googleearth-package.
dpkg-deb: Paket »googleearth« wird in »./googleearth_6.0.3.2197+0.6.0-1_amd64.deb« gebaut.
You can now install the package with e.g. sudo dpkg -i <package>.deb
[root@mepis1 ctest]#

If you don’t see any errors, then you should find the Google Earth .deb package in the current directory:

ls -l

[root@mepis1 ctest]# ls -l
insgesamt 34412
-rw-r–r– 1 root root 15094 26. Dez 2010 debian-multimedia-keyring_2010.12.26_all.deb

To install google earth, first install the gdebi package. Therefore, enter following command into a terminal:

apt-get install gdebi

Now you can install Google Earth as follows:

gdebi googleearth_6.0.3.2197+0.6.0-1_amd64.deb

11 Google Picasa

Go to and select the right .deb package for your architecture (i386 or amd64):


Save the file to your computer. After the download has finished, open a terminal and become root:


Then go to the directory where you have saved Picasa, e.g. /home/ctest/Downloads:

cd /home/ctest/Downloads

Take a look at the contents of the directory:

ls -l

[root@mepis1 Downloads]# ls -l
insgesamt 31040
-rw-r–r– 1 ctest users 31747574 31. Aug 13:52 picasa_3.0-current_amd64.deb
[root@mepis1 Downloads]#

You can now install Picasa as follows:

gdebi picasa_3.0-current_amd64.deb

Afterwards you can delete the Picasa .deb package:

rm -f picasa_3.0-current_amd64.deb


12 RealPlayer (For i386 Systems Only)

(RealPlayer is available for i386 systems only. If you are on an x86_64 system, please skip this chapter.)

Open Firefox and go to Click on the correct .deb link:


Then install the package exactly as shown for Picasa.


13 dvdrip

dvdrip gives you dependency errors if you try to install it via Synaptic. That is why you have to install aptitude first.

apt-get install aptitude

After that install dvdrip via aptitude (please notice the highlighted input choices):

aptitude install dvdrip
