Mhm, it it possible that you think that Debian is a library for
graphical frontends? That's not true, Debian is a Linux distribution
which distributes a Linux kernel together with a very large software

There are also many libraries in Debian which support GUI building.

(http://www.wxwidgets.org/), Motif like (http://www.lesstif.org/).  It's
