I would recommend one of the following ones:
Tryton (or one of its predecessors OpenERP or TinyERP)
Ledger-SMB (or its predecessor SQL-Ledger)
SQL-Ledger is packaged for Debian, but not Ledger-SMB.
All three "real" ERP applications are packaged for Debian (by same
maintainer, so perhaps you should ask him if the newest is the best or
the older ones are maybe more reliable or supports more mature modules).
Personally I have used SQL-Ledger for my one-man business for some years
and switched to Ledger-SMB when that fork matured somewhat.
I am currently considering Tryton for use at a large NGO in Denmark, but
have no real experience with it so far.
There are more tools than the above. The most user-friendly ones are
only single-user applications, however, which I personally dislike.
