Hi!

For some users, it might be easier to install via Debian/Ubuntu/openSUSE,
which might also handle the most important bits of “Application Setup”,
so this patch mentions this option.

Thoughts?

If you are still convinced this provides value above our existing shell
script, you had 2 LGTM here, so feel free to push or otherwise close it
