My everyday apps

My everyday apps are:

  • KWrite - for writing short text-files or scripts in the GUI
  • joe - same as KWrite, just shell-based
  • KOffice/OpenOffice - all office-related stuff, mainly spreadsheets with KSpread
  • Bluefish - for PHP-scripting and other web-related stuff
  • Konqueror - for web- and file-browsing
  • Kontact - for mail, news, etc.
  • Konsole - since I also do pretty much in shells

Some programs I use quite frequent, but not every day are:

  • Gimp - graphics-editing and sometimes buttons/banners for a website
  • Blender - to play around with some 3D from time to time
  • KStars/XEphem/Celestia/Stellarium - to make the little astronaut in me a little happy ;-)
  • Kino/Cinelerra - to record and convert video from DV-cam to DVD/VCD and other video-related stuff
  • QEmu - to test operating systems without the need of an extra hard-disc or to have Windows available for website-testing with IE
  • Kompare - in case I have to make my own patch for something

Well, I guess that should mostly cover it. Might be that I forgot something, but most of the stuff I frequently use should be here.

Ok here are mine everyday

Ok here are mine everyday apps:

  • Firefox/IceWeasel (heavy I know, but I need some extensions)
  • XChat (for IRC)
  • xfce4-terminal (terminal in X, though I've begun switching more often to plain console with ctrl-alt-f)
  • konqueror (remote file management via FTP or SSH, lately I'm using dolphin instead)
  • kate (editing those remote files, but also some local ones, mostly editing code (html, php, conf files etc))
  • mouspad or leafpad (light text editor for the rest)
  • Audacious (local music) or beep-media-player (works better for streaming radio stations (I listen to di.fm trance station)
  • Gaim (IM)
  • nano (console txt editor)
  • OpenOffice.org Writer or Calc (latter more often) for office work (mostly business tracking these days)
  • VLC primarily for occassional video playing (better than mplayer IMO though I use mplayer too).
  • gimp, inkscape for graphics work

Well most of the days I use most of the above.

Cheers
