I've just burned debian-live-9.4.0-amd64-gnome to a usb pen drive. Then started the live session and now I want to start the installer.

I have to go into the live session because I have to manually install my Broadcom BCM43142 wireless driver. After that I want to start the installer, but I can't figure out how to do it. Tried searching for debian-installer-launcher or similar program but couldn't find anything like that.


To launch the debian installer from the terminal , run:

sudo debian-installer-launcher

To launch the debian installer in the terminal and keep using the live session , follow this answer by @Stephen Kitt:

According to the documentation,

sudo debian-installer-launcher --text

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