On debian Jessie Live CD it is possible to run the installer by choosing Install debian Jessie or by running sudo debian-installer-launcher from the terminal , but the installer will be launched on full screen.

Is that possible to launch debian installer in the terminal and keep using the live session?


According to the documentation,

sudo debian-installer-launcher --text

will launch the text-mode installer in a new terminal window.

  • unfortunately it seems to have changed in stretch and i don't seem to find its new name. i'm staring at a booted debian 9.4 live pendrive, and the installer is nowhere to be found. – Attila Lendvai Jul 13 '18 at 10:19

    @Attila it was removed in Stretch (Debian 9), see #844611 for details. – Stephen Kitt Jul 13 '18 at 11:20
