    You can also try these:-
    pyrenamer, a mass file renamer.
    stellarium for any budding astronomers out there
    zenity makes nice GUI dialogs for your scripts
    xautomation allows you to simulate keypresses in scripts (possibly for advanced users)

    Anyway, sorry for getting all gushy, it's just awesome. Thank you.
    Glad to see that I can help folks that would otherwise be having difficulties. I've found it's far better to show people how to do the basics first before leaving them to figure out more advanced tasks or issues. New users (like I once was) need a foundation to build up from and hopefully this post provides that for them. Thank you for the good words and please share with friends and associates.

    Regards,

    Paresh, your suggestions are great but a bit advanced for new users. I'd like to catch up with you in a couple of weeks and work on a advanced users post...something like "Ubuntu Advanced Desktop Computing Made Easy".

    Cheers!

    Sounds good. It would be great.

    Well, except for stellarium, I agree with you. An advanced version sounds like a good idea. Feel free to contact me when you're ready.

    Right on Stellarium, I just added it, nice application. I am interested in posting a more advanced Made Easy post at this point having posted a more or less a new users oriented post for the last three releases. I should have more time in late June, we'll catch up then and thanks.
