This package provides the console with the same keyboard configuration scheme as the X Window System. As a result, there is no need to duplicate or change the keyboard files just to make simple customizations such as the use of dead keys, the key functioning as AltGr or Compose key, the key(s) to switch between Latin and non-Latin mode, etc.

The package also installs console fonts supporting many of the world's languages. It provides an unified set of font faces - the classic VGA, the simplistic Fixed, and the cleaned Terminus, TerminusBold and TerminusBoldVGA.

D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications. Conceptually, it fits somewhere in between raw sockets and CORBA in terms of complexity.

On systemd systems, this package opts in to the session model in which a user's session starts the first time they log in, and does not end until all their login sessions have ended. This model merges all parallel non-graphical login sessions (text mode, ssh, cron, etc.), and up to one graphical session, into a single "user-session" or "super-session" within which all background D-Bus services are shared.

Multiple graphical sessions per user are not currently supported in this mode; as a result, it is particularly suitable for gdm, which responds to requests to open a parallel graphical session by switching to the existing graphical session and unlocking it.

To retain dbus' traditional session semantics, in which login sessions are artificially isolated from each other, remove this package and install dbus-x11 instead.

See the dbus package description for more information about D-Bus in general.

Machine-readable data files, shared objects and programs used by the C library for localization (l10n) and internationalization (i18n) support.

This package contains tools to generate locale definitions from source files (included in this package). It allows you to customize which definitions actually get generated. This is a space-saver over how this package used to be, with all locales generated by default. This created a package that unpacked to an excess of 30 megs.

Make an installation able to netboot as an LTSP client. For LTSP servers, also install the suggested packages (dnsmasq etc).

LTSP helps in netbooting LAN clients from a single installation that resides in a chroot or a VM on the LTSP server. This way maintaining tens or hundreds of clients is as easy as maintaining a single PC.

This is the portable version of OpenSSH, a free implementation of the Secure Shell protocol as specified by the IETF secsh working group.

Ssh (Secure Shell) is a program for logging into a remote machine and for executing commands on a remote machine. It provides secure encrypted communications between two untrusted hosts over an insecure network. X11 connections and arbitrary TCP/IP ports can also be forwarded over the secure channel. It can be used to provide applications with a secure communication channel.

This package provides the sshd server.

In some countries it may be illegal to use any encryption at all without a special permit.

sshd replaces the insecure rshd program, which is obsolete for most purposes.

PulseAudio, previously known as Polypaudio, is a sound server for POSIX and WIN32 systems. It is a drop in replacement for the ESD sound server with much better latency, mixing/re-sampling quality and overall architecture.

These are some of PulseAudio's features:

  • High quality software mixing of multiple audio streams with support for more than one sink/source. May be used to combine multiple sound cards into one (with sample rate adjustment).

  • Wide range of supported client libraries. ESD, ALSA, oss, libao and GStreamer client applications are supported as-is. Native PulseAudio plug-ins are also available for xmms and mplayer.

  • Good low latency behaviour and very accurate latency measurement for playback and recording. Ability to fully synchronize multiple playback streams.

  • Network transparency, allowing an application to play back or record audio on a different machine than the one it is running on.

  • Extensible plug-in architecture with plug-ins for jackd, multicast-rtp lirc and avahi, just to name a few.

This package contains the daemon and basic module set.

The Xorg X server is an X server for several architectures and operating systems, which is derived from the XFree86 4.x series of X servers.

The Xorg server supports most modern graphics hardware from most vendors, and supersedes all XFree86 X servers.

More information about X.Org can be found at:

This package is built from the X.org xserver module.
