debian-after-install is my setup script for Debian GNU/Linux 11 (bullseye). It is ideally run after first boot into a minimal install of Debian.

Run -h for options.


  • Choice of either minimal, server or desktop (with Openbox) configuration
  • Upgrade system
  • Install extra console and desktop packages
  • Optional: Install from a list of packages (More: Generate a list of installed deb packages)
  • Optional: Auto-install security updates
  • Use zram for swap
  • Customize GRUB
  • Sudo without a password for <your_username>
  • Optional: Select different keyboard and console-font

How does it work?

  1. sudo apt update; sudo apt install git
  2. git clone
  3. cd debian-after-install
  4. sudo ./ <your_username>
