How to Install BasKet on Debian 11



In this digital age, when remote working and learning have almost replaced regular work and school hours. We are experiencing new and innovative ways of doing things. One of them is also note-taking. There are dozens of note-taking applications available in the digital market. Every operating system comes with some sort of default note-taking application. Previously we have discussed Mousepad, a quality editor for programmers.

However, not all of them fulfill what the user needs. Therefore, you will find a highly productive and mature note-taking application for your notes. I shall install BasKet on Debian 11 Edition. I do not recommend installing it using Ubuntu PPAs or repositories.
