I'll spin up a VM sometime this week - assuming I can make time. That's an unusual grouping of software, so it should be interesting. If any show-stopping bugs appear, I'll try to let you know - unless you monitor it yourself.

More eyes the better - I do this myself I am bound to miss something now and again

Latest Update 05 May 2022 - ExpirionDE-Xfces
I am pleased to announce ExpirionDE (Debian Edition) Xfce with the Refracta Installer based on Debian 11 stable
This version is for UEFI computers. If you are installing into a Legacy Bios at the end of the installation process you’ll get the chance to install the correct Grub. You will have to click on Chroot towards the end of the installation which will bring up a Root terminal and run the following two commands 1) grub-install /dev/sda - and then run 2) update-grub. Once finished close the Chroot terminal and continue the Refracta installer to finish the installation - you may see a Grub Probe error, this is due to your USB is plugged in and the grub sees it, you can safely ignore it.
Included software - Refracta Snapshot and Installer, LibreOffice 7.3.3, VLC 3.0.16, Audacious, Firefox ESR 91.9, Thunderbird 91.8, Gparted, Debian Kernel 5.10.0-14, plus internal firmware and standard updates.

Using Refracta Snapshot you can create your own remastered live bootable/installable ISO of your Expirion system once you get everything setup just like you want.
