    Thumbs up Re: HowTo: Ubuntu Command-Line Edition

    OMG!!!!

    I thought maybe I was only doing this...

    Great job dude... it feels great to know people still love CLI or TUI whatever you can call it

    I came across while searching about command line because I've been trying to do the same thing... aka BUILD A COMMAND LINE UBUNTU LINUX. I mostly chose curses based applications... for my init 3 system

    Here's my list of software (after trying out many others):

    Music Player - orpheus
    Web Browser - w3m / links2 (for JavaScript support)
    Sound recorder - rec
    Sound player - play
    Editor - nano
    Viewing Microsoft Word Documents - catdoc
    Spreadsheet - sc / slsc
    Presentation Software - tpp

    cadubi - drawing ASCII images
    calcurse - calendar application
    abook - address book
    elmo - email client
    bittornado - torrent downloader
    cmatrix - screensaver (wow, you thought of the same thing)
    lockvc - screensaver with console lock
    centericq - messaging client (MSN, IRC, Yahoo, etc.)
    saidar - view system statistics
    zgv - Image Viewer


    File Managers:
    vfu, mc, clex, lfm, etc.

    Plus I guess there are lots of useful software out there which can run on CLI

    Hey dude if you have the time, message me.
    It would be great to build a CLI system catered to modern needs.

    I don't know if it has been mentioned (i didn't have the attention span to read all of the comments) but for AIM use bsflite, it works well.

    Re: HowTo: Ubuntu Command-Line Edition

    Great thread and some very useful info. I have now installed a CL Edition of Ubuntu and am very impressed by it's speed and simplicity. This post is written using it!
    One question, are there any other address book programs out there for the console, as I find abook to not quite meet my needs?

    Many thanks.

    Re: HowTo: Ubuntu Command-Line Edition

    Hi,

    I enjoyed reading your absolutely fascinating post. Good on you for trying something different! You might be interested in utilising the newsreader slrn for which I have written quite a detailed guide:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ght=howto+slrn

    I guess you would have to modify all references to the Desktop though I am working on a similar guide to using the MUA mutt. This would fit right in with your concept of a command line ubuntu.

    All the best,

    Andrew

    Re: HowTo: Ubuntu Command-Line Edition

    yay for command line... i stumbled upon most of those apps in the development of my command line desktop... the essentials i cant live without, even with a gui are mc, centericq, rtorrent, mpd with ncmpc and top... i havent messed around much with screen since i still run a gui desktop (god bless xorg and fluxbox) but good to know about in case i ever do go completely command line... overall great little experiment/tutorial for those who fear the command line, and the additions made by everyone else just prove the extent of options out there, even in a command line environment

    I am working on another that is still a little unpolished which deals with the email client mutt:
