What else to find in the debian corner:

keyboard layout

If you want to change your keyboard layout (if the us default has been installed) to e.g. a german layout:

  1. dpkg-reconfigure locales (choose the locale you need, e.g. German
  2. dpkg-reconfigure console-data
    1. OK
    2. choose keymap from list
    3. querz
    4. German
    5. Standard
    6. latin1 - no dead keys
    7. OK

The alternatives system

You can easy specify (for all users) what editor should be used:

# shows what's configured:
update-alternatives --display editor
# joe will be the standard editor to be used:
update-alternatives --set editor /usr/bin/joe 
# or to use vim instead:
update-alternatives --set editor /usr/bin/vim.basic

Iceweasel and Flash

To update Adobe Flash Player on Debian Wheezy with Iceweasel 17 the following command will do:

sudo update-flashplugin-nonfree --install
