What is BrDesktop?

We are an official package for the Debian GNU/Linux operating system that has been designed specifically for those of you who live, work and use Linux as your desktop operating system in Brazil.

BrDesktop is a preconfigured packaged distribution for Brazilian Debian GNU/Linux home desktop users in Pure Blend. The main goal of BrDesktop is to allow Brazilian users an easy way to install and use Debain right from the start without needing to supplement additional Debain packages after the initial installation.

Additional packages include Portuguese language desktop as well as additional Brazilian localization options and packages pre-selected.

The bundle is meant to include what most Brazilian users would come to want and expect in a desktop application.

The BrDesktop Lenny iso image uses the Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.1 Lenny packages up-to-date as of 23-April-2016.


Some of the default BrDesktop packages are:

GNOME desktop environment
Iceweasel web browser and Icedove email client
Gimp, Inkscape and Gthumb for visualization and image editing office suite
Listen for playing and organizing music
Totem for videos
Amule and Deluge-torrent for peer-to-peer sharing
Cheese for taking photos and videos with a web cam
and more….

The BrDesktop is developed and maintained by Brazilian users and developers. The discussion list and IRC are used in order to coordinate the development process which is open to anyone with Linux background and end users themselves. All improvements will become part of the Debian Project official repository, and as such must follow the Debian Policy for quality.

You can join the Portuguese Debian User mailing list for user support and news as it is a Debian GNU/Linux Pure Blend.
