7 Interesting Apps for Command-Line

,----[ Quote ]
| aaxine - watch movies in the shell
| aaxine is included in the xine-console package and can be used to watch video 
| files in a shell, without the need of the X Window System, with the help of 
| ASCII characters. See the screenshot below:

| 1. Video DownloadHelper - download media files (including YouTube Flash 
| videos) 
| Video DownloadHelper is maybe the most popular and powerful Firefox add-on 
| for downloading Flash videos from various websites. Along with that, Video 
| DownloadHelper also supports a wide range of video and audio files, including 
| RAM, WMV, ASF, AVI and MP3, and you can add custom extensions too.    


8 Power Docks For Your Linux Machine

,----[ Quote ]
| To have or not to have a dock in Linux is really dependent on individual 
| preferences. While popular Linux distros such as Ubuntu and Fedora do not 
| come with a dock by default, there are plenty of dock applications around 
| that one can easily install and create a dock for their desktop.   


8 Image Viewers for Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| Gwenview
| Gwenview is by far the most popular image viewer for KDE, and it comes with 
| all the features a well-thought image viewing application should have: it 
| provides a file browser, previews, resizeable thumbnails, and a wealth of 
| plug-ins for basic image manipulation. The sidebar will display image 
| information, together with shortcuts to several useful file operations, like 
| left/right rotation, resize or red eye reduction. You can also insert ratings 
| for your images, up to five stars (handled the same way Amarok 2.0.2 handles 
| ratings for audio files).       



10 Must-Have Linux Applications

,----[ Quote ]
| 9. Pidgin
| While I work hard not to spend my days in instant messenger, the fact remains
| that I do conduct a fair amount of business in my favorite IM. And that IM of
| choice is known as Pidgin.
| Unlike other IM clients, Pidgin is cross platform, open source, and best of
| all, highly extensible. Just look at the list of add-ons you can bring to the
| party here!
| What makes this a must-have application?
| Pidgin can provide protocol support to just about anything. Not just AIM,
| MSN, ICQ, and Yahoo. No, Pidgin also can use add-ons to provide support for
| Twitter updates and Facebook chat, amongst other new ways of communicating.
| 10. KINO
| Not my only choice for handling the needs of video editing, but definitely
| what I use to extract video off of my DV camera without using CLI and DVGrab.
| KINO also is a great means for a fast edit without needing to bother with
| more complex video editing programs. Visual effects are provided, and despite
| it being a little strange to work with at first, the code is very stable to
| use.
| What makes this a must-have application?
| Simplicity and speed. I love alternatives like Cinelerra. But for most
| people, this is too much. And unlike Kdenlive, which spends more time
| crashing than working, KINO gives anyone the ability to edit video easily and
| without worrying about their application crashing.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
