Fave Apps or Apps I add after installing VSIDO
« on: January 06, 2014, 02:01:04 AM »
I always add:
roxterm
Version: 2.7.2-1
Installed-Size: 62
Maintainer: Tony Houghton <h@realh.co.uk>
Architecture: all
Depends: roxterm-gtk3 (>= 2.7.2-1)
Benefits: many but you can set the term to warn on command finish or keep open on finish, great for debugging scripts, etc.  It's just a term emulator but it's features bring some things to the table not available elsewhere.

Also clipit
       bashburn
       keepassx
       numlockx
which I am sure everyone is familiar with. Not really essential but would save me a few apt-gets

All right, all those pass the muster along with a request for NTP from PackRat

Edit - bashburn really needed?  It adds a hefty amount (compared to the rest) ... just asking

[edit]ntp is a very good addition

Dang gnab it~ I really should read before posting.  I like bashburn but you are right.  It's an easy add and I do have some things that I plop in myself like bashburn/gnucash/etc for work related stuff.  I rarely burn discs and agree its probably a user choice rather than good to have in there.  The others I think add some value.[/edit]
No it's an autocracy, I really don't have a vote right?  Only am allowed to add input  :'(

I am sure it's great but I don't use gui for rsync evah (only use rsync in scripts with zenity that I write if any interface is needed otherwise command line) and for that matter tend to use rdiff-backup almost as much as rsync anyway.  Which btw rdiff-backup might need to be on this list, forgot about it.

I am sure it is a fine upstanding program and have all the faith in the world it will be an excellent addition.  I am actually still upset you swapped out Geany for that Tea-party or whatever it is editor :(

Oh forgot to add

upstart
unity

(chortles at own joke)

:D  I am choking on those suggestions!

Geany is good but overblown IMO... it is part of the welcome script...  I think I may add the bulk of these to that instead, it probably makes more sense to do that

BTW I looped that video of Steve and the q and a period.  The unintentional comedy is awesome and a couple of friends of mine and I have spent most of the afternoon doing riffs off of it like:

Why are you guys so concerned about the ozone hole?  If you don't agree with it just move to another planet and see what happens.

etc.  Thanks again for posting it.

VSIDO include many good terminal applications that are not visible in the menu. So many users might not be aware of their existence. How about a list of included terminal apps with the version of VSIDO here on the website or better still somewhere in the user directory of VSIDO install or best how about a terminal menu for terminal apps?
Cheers.

I'll add my vote to roxterm - an excellent under the radar app. I think it's what Parted Magic and Puppy distros use. Good drop-in replacement for both urxvt and xfce4-terminal.

ntpdate is a good companion app for ntp.

I noticed you now have tea installed by default; I recommend you do a comparison of tea with scite - scite is another under the radar app; text editor for power users/programers. I think it has some python dependencies - but most are installed by default. Doesn't tea have some QT dependencies? It may be a trade off as far as file size is concerned, but in the long run, I think python has more value for VSIDO. Scite can be a bit tricky tom set up, but it's rather powerful.

menu (+ terminal menu (maybe?)) for terminal apps sounds great!  could be a great way to help uncover a lot of the gems that vsido has in it... one command to reveal them all.  like... i still think all the smxi etc stuff is rather tucked away in a corner buried deep...  most peeps just wont know.

[edit]er, well, i [/i]presume[/i] they're still tucked&buried... i havnt really given much of a thorough look at recent ootb vsido.[/edit]
[edit2]i suppose peeps could just type "alias" to see a lot of the goodies too... but who ever does that?[/edit]

smxi is a tough one to menu since it should not be run within X (tty1)... but the WIVAWIC page also points out that smxi is installed as a stub and can be run right away

I will setup a terminal menu item on the next build.  It will have xfce4-terminal, xterm, roxterm and whatever else you all tell me is there or should be on it

For the record, I like xfce4-terminal... It carries none of the baggage of the xfce4 core dependencies and just works.  Having said that, I will dive into roxterm and get aquainted

Description-en: fast and lightweight IDE
 Geany is a small and lightweight integrated development environment.
 It was developed to provide a small and fast IDE, which has only a
 few dependencies from other packages. It is using only the GTK2 toolkit
 and therefore you need only the GTK2 runtime libraries to run Geany.
 .
 The basic features of Geany are:
  - syntax highlighting
  - code completion
  - auto completion of constructs like if, for and while, XML and HTML
  - call tips
  - folding
  - many supported filetypes like C, Java, PHP, HTML, Python, Perl, Pascal
  - symbol lists
  - embedded terminal emulation

To my eye the differences seem negligible.  I am not familiar with scite but it does look quite a bit heavier. Not sure if that is balanced out with functionality.  Geany may be bombastic or whatever term v-ger used but the flexibility it has (plugins, scripts, easy to set up templates, code check, build and run in the interface) make it just something I lub.  Having said all that I am fine with only medit on the install and the rest in welcome or not at all.

Ummm I do all the time :)  I am not sure how, short of a manual you can instruct people about smxi.  It is just something you know or you don't.

^ Thanks for the comparison... Geany does look like the winner

As far as smxi, there is a How To here that I put together quite a while ago... From the amount of feedback I have received on it both here and on #!, it seems to have helped

Hey mrneilypops for the save.  I needed some toys to brighten my day.  That dstat looks like wholesome geeky fun!  Thanks for the rec.

[edit] I was working on something else and just thought of this.  Is parted in the standard install.  It's pretty handy.  I was actually thinking of writing a how to on it.[/edit]

This is my idea of base gui applications that can get any user started comfortably without burdening him or the system down,
Internet:
wicd, iceweasel, clawsmail, transmission
Audio-Video:
smplayer, gmusicbrowser, radio tray
Graphics-Image:
nitrogen, mirage, xfce4-screenshooter
Programming-Document:
mousepad, geany, evince, abiword, gnumeric
File-System:
spacefm, gnome-disk-utility, gparted
Utilities:
arandr, roxterm, clipit, bleachbit, lxtask, conky, volume icon, tint2, P7zip, xfburn, synaptic package manager
Cheers.
