In a previous blog entry, I shared my first impressions and images of Peppermint ICE, a light-weight cloud oriented GNU/Linux distribution that simply takes one’s breath away.
- Abiword – the little word processor that could…also does other neat stuff.
- Audacity sound editor
- Calibre – allows me to convert various ebook formats
- Filezilla FTP client
- Gnomebaker – CD/DVD burning program
- Gnumeric Spreadsheet program – handles Excel files, exports to CSV, etc.
- KeepassX – securely store your passwords in an encrypted database that is accessible on Windows, Mac and GNU/Linux, as well as Android and iPhone/iPod devices.
- Miro HD Player –
- PDFMod – allows me to easily take apart or combine pages in a PDF file.
- Shotwell Photo Manager – enables me to upload images to Facebook and/or PicasaWeb.
- Shutter screen capture tool, simply the best I’ve seen and rivals Skitch on Mac.
- Simple Scan – Either this or XSANE to connect to my scanner.
- SkypeCallRecorder (actually works!)
- Sound Converter
- Unetbootin to create bootable USB flash drives from Live Linux ISOs
- VLC Media Player –
To easily install any of these programs, simply open a terminal window (Accessories->LXterminal) and type in “sudo apt-get install programname” to get it started. For example….
