Thread: Cool applications

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Cool applications

    Hey people,
    We all know there are a ton of cool applications for Linux - keeping track of them is the hard part and knowing all the apps out there is even tough. For instance i was looking and looking for someing to covert my mp3s to oggs, then rename and add ID3 tags. Tonight after I am l done with this task I find this!!

    Cantus - an easy to use tool for tagging and renaming MP3 and OGG/Vorbis files.

    So if you could please post something that is kinda unique lets everyone know. I hope to keep this thread sticky...


    BTW people!! I will be editing posts just to keep a consistant format, e.g. the application name will be a link to the application and that is about all. The context will not change. I am guessing this will get bigger and one of these days i will wanna catagorize stuff.


    And oh yea! all responses get an + carma point!

    gkrellm. Definitely a needed app. It makes everything nice...

    the standard in system monitering.
    Stuff gkrellm can do with the right pluggin: volume control, ever important moniter for hardware specs, e.g. CPU temperature, mail notification, control of radio cards. loads 'o' stuff.

    I realize this is a very old post. I'm just getting around the site, and tried the link in the above post but it no longer works.

    I could sure use a cool system monitoring app ....I have not been through all the pages of this thread, but hope someone can point me to where this app now is available.

    Sorry if the answer is already posted in one of the replies I have not read yet.

    Thanks!

    I use Gnome, and it has a great system monitor applet. Just right-click on your panel, and select "Add to Panel...", scroll down to "System and Hardware", and select "System Monitor". This will give you a CPU monitor. If you right-click on it you can expand it to monitor all kinds of things.

    If that's not your style, there's always gdesklets. Take a look further down the page for the categories of desklets, some of which can monitor CPU, network stats, memory, hard disk, etc...

    Re:Cool applications

    Prozilla - speed up downloads
    Squid - speed up web browsing & block web ads
    File Runner - excellent file manager

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

    edit by pbharris:
    Hey - that prozilla and file runner look very cool, is the squid you refer to the proxy version ?
