I Want A Linux/Unix Freeware Utility To ... - Update 2nd August 2007
By user12607856 on Aug 02, 2007
It's hard to believe that it's been almost six months since I've updated this list. I've now integrated all the suggestions I've received from various people (thanks!)
- From Erick Woods:
Added a note to indicate that tsclient is also a front-end to VNC and X via XDMCP.
- From Charles Nichols:
Inclusion in the References section to "Mohawke's Best of the Best Free and Open Source Software Collection from Dark Artistry"
Added isomaster to section M2 - burn/create CD/DVD iso image files.
- From Ben Pintilie:
Added a new B14 section (edit mp3/wav files) and added audacity to it.
- From Bart:
Added gqview to section I19 (find any duplicate photographs in a folder).
- From Diego Pettenò:
To cut wav files (B-13) you can use shntool.
KDE also provide ksnapshot for Screen Shots (C-1)
Kopete has experimental support for Google Talk (D-5) audio calls, chat works as it's Jabber.
KDevelop (F-1) should have a K icon beside, as well as Filelight (G-7)
If K-3 can be extended to "your browser" rather than Firefox, Konqueror (KDE) allows you to do it from the bookmark editor: File, Export, Export to HTML bookmarks.
For K-5, KDE also have an XML-proper editor.
K-9, KMail should have a K icon, not a cli icon.
M-26: kima also is good for KDE.
N-7: KDE has KOrganizer/Kontact (kde suite)
Q-1 and Q-4: K9Copy for KDE.
Q-9: mplayer, xine and frontends (like Kaffeine for KDE).
- From Alan Horkan:
Created a new section C-13 (General word processing) so that abiword could be added to the list. Also added OpenOffice and KOffice to this section.
Added Xarchiver to section G-2.
- From zbrox:
The burning of CD's application Brasero is a GTK application, so is Serpentine.
Added mpg123 to section B-4 (play all mp3 files in a folder).
Added quodlibet to section B-3 (organize the mp3 collection).
- Added little green balls to all the applications I've personally tried since the last update to this list.
