What is a functional equivalent in the Debian repository?
I looked at at LibreOffice Base. It was unusable as its "help" system
provided no intrinsic way to increase fonts to a legible size.
https://packages.debian.org/stable/database/ was not useful as it
doesn't categorize the list.
You can make minimal use of PostgreSQL. Easy to install and configure on
Debian. Robust and runs well unattended. Thoroughly documented. Check
out pgAdmin, which can administer and manage your database. It includes
a table editor.
It sounds to me like you want a configurable CRUD front-end. Do you
want a web interface?
Hadn't run into that acronym before, had to look it up. But is what I
want. Don't need a web interface. And to answer someone else, it will be
strictly single user, everything resides on my laptop.
