    MKVextract GUI for Linux

    On Windows there's MKVExtractGUI as a frontend for mkvextract.
    But MKVExtractGUI doesn't exist for Linux. So far, Linux users had to use commands via terminal when they wanted to extract tracks from an MKV.

    Now lately I found an article about an extractor GUI for Linux.
    It's simply called 'MKV Extractor GUI' and is very easy to install in Ubuntu.

    Forum topic from the author (in French):
    http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.php?id=293216


    Documentation for the current version (in French):
    http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/mkv_extractor_gui_v4

    If you can't read French, doesn't matter. The software's GUI is very intuitive, no French involved.



    And you can simply install it via terminal:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hizo/mkv-extractor-gui
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install mkv-extractor-gui
    Hope this is useful for other people, too.

    And of course there is also:

    MKVToolNix -- Cross-platform tools for Matroska
    http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/

    which is available in the Ubuntu Repository:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install mkvtoolnix-gui
    You think that's air you're breathing now?
