Debian GNU/Linux SuiteTelecentro: millions of users for the digital society every year

The Brazilian Debian GNU / Linux SuiteTelecentro benefits more than 4 millions users every year.

The Brazilian Debian GNU / Linux SuiteTelecentro is a custom solution which is currently being deployed in the Digital Inclusion Program of Banco do Brasil. SuiteTelecentro is used in approximately 2000 telecentres and computer rooms. The Program is all across Brazil through various partners such as local communities and Non Governmental Organizations. The Program is already active at 953 cities, with more than 40,000 donated computers, 2,900 instructors trained, and more than 4 millions low-income users who benefit from the Debian GNU / Linux SuiteTelecentro and Digital Inclusion Program of Banco do Brasil each and every year.

With 668,000 total downloads at its Brazilian development site on Codigo Livre, the customized Debian GNU / Linux SuiteTelecentro is in the top 5 among the 1952 projects hosted.

The SuiteTelecentro, for use at telecentres, allows for the utilisation of older, lower performance computer hardware as terminals for LTSP servers. Through this technology, a telecentre needs only a single machine with a more up-to-date processor and more memory, where all software will be executed. The less capable ones act only as graphical interfaces.

Gilson Jardim, Issamo Kisaka and members of Free Software Digital Inclusion Team, Banco do Brasil IT Board, stated in an interview to Debian Times that the SuiteTelecentro project chose Debian GNU / Linux as its foundation because of the Debian Project commitment to Free Libre Software, and the documentation quality that allows easy customization of the Debian Installer. The main advantages of using Debian GNU / Linux for SuiteTelecentro are the easy system, packages and services installation; easy upgrade and configuration; and the inherent stability and security of the system.

The latest stable version contains the KDE graphical environment which runs over LTSP. The user remotely executes the office suite, the Firefox web browser and the Gimp (GNU Image Manipulation Program).

The SuiteTelecentro also includes the telecentre management software Ocara and its dependencies ( Apache, MySQL, PHP). Ocara was developed by the IT department of Banco do Brasil , which has already migrated 50,000 desktops and 15,000 ATMs to GNU / Linux; 90,000 installations.

The latest stable version, 1.1-7, was developed on Debian GNU / Linux 3.1 Sarge. The next version 2.0 is upcoming. As of April 2008, the Beta 10-8 version is available for download. The new features over previous stable version are:

  • Based on Debian GNU / Linux 4.0 Etch operating system.
  • LTSP 4.2
  • Gnome graphical desktop environment
  • Simplified installation process
  • MediaWiki
  • The "menu_telecentro" script, with options to create boot diskettes, enable and configure remote terminals (video, mouse, swap configurations and reconfigurations), modify MySQL passwords.
