# Lines that start with <tt>#</tt> don't have to be ''copy-pasted''. They are just comments to let you know what's going on.

Debian Wheezy is similar to Ubuntu 12.04, so you can try following the instructions meant for this particular Ubuntu version: [[Installation/Linux/foam-extend-3.0/Ubuntu#Ubuntu_12.04]]
# One wrong character is enough for breaking this guide, so make sure you can read the characters properly or that the installed language system does not break the copied characters!
