dCore Extension Management

SCE extensions (self contained extensions) add functionality to a minimalistic dCore base installation. They are managed through various commands. Strategies to optimize extensions are also outlined.

Traditionally dCore extensions are managed via command line. If using a Window Manager set up for dCore, the built-in Control panel (System Tools → Control Panel) now has an 'Sce Tools' button that launches these commands in a terminal with default options: sce-import, sce-load, sce-debpurge, sce-update, sce-remove. This is most suitable for new users or those that do not require fine-grained control over SCE extension management.

More advanced users will appreciate the richness provided by command line options. In a terminal, enter the command name followed by –help (two dashes) for usage information (eg. sce-import –help).
