a light weight gnome desktop

i've try to build a light weight gnome desktop with debian testing, here is how

download this iso and burn it into cdrw or this iso for amd64 platform , and install debian as usual

add non-free , contrib to /etc/apt/source.list

install xorg with command apt-get install xorg

install gdm3 with command apt-get install gdm3

install mutter with command apt-get install mutter

install iceweasel , mozplugger , flashplugin-nonfree with command apt-get install iceweasel mozplugger flashplugin-nonfree

install gnome packages with command apt-get install gnome-core file-roller unrar gthumb openoffice.org openoffice.org-gnome emesene filezilla network-manager-gnome ibus ibus-chewing gnome-themes pulseaudio gnome-screensaver totem gnome-codec-install ttf-arphic-ukai ttf-arphic-uming ttf-sazanami-gothic ttf-sazanami-mincho ttf-baekmuk msttcorefonts

it's also fun to try the new gnome3 interface gnome-shell , install it with command

apt-get install gnome3-session , then select gnome3 from gdm login screen , that's it
