I tried the nonfree software disc firmware-10.2.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso and it was essentially useless

The most troublefree install ISO is the non-free NET-INSTALL ISO, NOT the DVD version. You probably didn't set your sources correctly. Also you probably needed mode-setting on the ATI card, and/or a GFX resolution setting.

And, if I recall correctly, when I got it installed it gave you only one desktop,... Xfce

You don't recall correctly. All my gnome with wayland installations are from the non-free net-install ISO.

By the way, recently I needed the address of the page at a friend's place and searched for it with Google. Google did not seem to list it in any shape or form

Could be its missing cert, and/or a domain name or copyright infringement.

Do you think this is deliberate censorship by Google?

Google can't censor anything, excepting only what user/you or some law/government or user/MS/Intel/cartel tell them to.

I might stop using Google

Good idea. Maybe you'll lose this address too.

You can't believe your eyes if your imagination is out of focus.

Code: Select all
# apt install ttf-liberation

Such a package, ttf-liberation, is in Jessie and Stretch repos, but not in Buster repo. In Buster repos is
Code: Select all

Please, correct this. By the way, nice guide.
OS: Debian 10.3 Buster / WM: xmonad
