Great idea for a thread, great input
a great little app for renaming files, can do almost anything I can think of (I use it mostly for renaming pictures by number, but it can do mp3s by tag and stuff too)
ntop looks cool too, although it would appear the Japan repo servers are down ATM
also, see wicd in my sig (not in repo but .deb is avaliable)
pcman seems pretty great. How is it on low end systems? Systems not fast enough to run thunar?
chkrootkit, even it's a cli application...as the name says, it does one thing and it does it well: checks for rootkits . I find it handy and useful
The limits of my language mean the limits of my world
exhibit is an image viewer for e17. it's kind of like a shiney, pretty version of gqview. best thing about it - it actually works.
conky -- its in the repos (I use it to place a 5 day weather forecast & current contitions) -- its also a good system monitor.. It generally uses between 0.35% and 0.40% of processor. That's right its less than 1%. Shows cpu usage, network usages, system messages, drive usage, uptime and .................................................
Its in the repos - but compiling the one one sourceforge gives a few more features.
my two favorites:
texmacs it's a great scientific editor.
texmacs (yes deserves beeing referenced twice ) It works too as a GUI for a lot of apps like, maxima, gnuplot, R, axiom, etc.
scite excellent file editor with colored syntax, automplete, compilation window and a thousand options that make gedit a poor one, but lighter and much faster.
Adds a right click menu option to open the terminal, either from the desktop or in a nautilus directory. If you use it in a nautilus directory, it will open terminal in that directory. I always have to log out and back in when I first install it to see it.
