How to make Resetter compatible with any debian based distros?

Please follow this guide

If Resetter complains that you're missing a manifest or userlist although your distro is supported please see the wiki page. Other distro support coming soon - If you want to add support yourself, it is very easy to do so, just upload your files to share with everyone following this video.

How to install

Download the deb files found here then on the terminal, run the following commands:

Ubuntu based systems (Mint, Elementary, Budgie, etc...)

sudo apt install ./resetter_3.0.0-stable_all.deb

Debian based systems (Deepin, raspbian, etc...)

sudo apt install ./add-apt-key_1.0-0.5_all.deb
sudo apt install ./resetter_3.0.0-stable_all.deb


-Resetter 3.0.0 is brand new, completely rewritten in Python3 and PyQt5 with newer libraries. Fixes many of the issues the previous version had.

Other features:

- Manifest and userlist updater: By clicking on *"help"*>*"update files"* - Easy install: Basically, you will be able to build your own list of apps that you'd like to mass install after a reset or fresh install. It can also be used anytime to install a package. If you saved a backup file using the save feature prior to your reset or fresh install, you will be able to restore the apps from that list if they're available to install.
  • Easy PPA: With this feature, you can search for PPAs containing apps directly from resetter and install it into your system. It will also grab the ppa's key automatically. This eliminates the need of using a terminal to add ppas from launchpad making distros more user friendly.

  • Source Editor: It is a normal editor that can disable, enable, or remove ppas from a user's system but what makes this different from other source editors is that you can search for the ppa that you want to edit.
