2 questions:

1.  I wonder if there is a way to get Debian functioning without a 
desktop environment?

2.  How would one go about installing Livecode on a system without a GUI?

2.1  I wonder if one could install Livecode on Debian running, say, 
XFCE, and then
remove XFCE and call Livecode from the command line?

The latter one is more urgent than the former.
