If I had to put together a "software essentials pack" for the Ubuntu desktop it'd be something like:
• Geary (email app)
• Shotwell (set as image viewer)
• GNOME Feeds (local rss reader)
• Drawing (simple image editor)
• Celluloid/GNOME MPV
• Lollypop (music player)
What would be in your "software essentials" pack?
@omgubuntu currently: VLC, Clementine, Steam, VS Code, Chrome, Tilix, htop.
@omgubuntu OpenShot video editor. My son loves it! *(I use kdenlive though)
@omgubuntu LibreOffice, Firefox, Tilix, Steam, Discord, Spotify, Kdenlive, Blender, and Google Chrome for emergencies because Google likes to break their websites of competing browsers.
Oh, and VS Code and Code::Blocks.
- Brave (Web Browser)
- LibreOffice (Office Suite)
- VLC (Media player)
- Wine (To drink when I'm working 😜 )
- VS Code (if a dev)
- Tilix (with oh-my-zsh)
- Tor & Tor Browser
@easthighNerd Tilix! How could I forget that.Nice selection
* Thunderbird (because it supports encryption)
* Gnome Tweaks
Vivaldi and TOR Browser
A decent text editor
Joint Logic's B-Folders (Outliner)
Bitnami (local instances)
Nicotine (p2p client)
Firefox, VLC, LibreOffice, Inkscape, Scribus (1.5), Gimp, Shotwell, Rhythmbox, Gramps, VirtualBox.
@omgubuntu Hmm, even though I use KDE, gnome-disks is quite important for me, as some quick disk management tools are there.
@omgubuntu Mastodon now has a voting feature :)
@omgubuntu I didin't know about Geary! I thought there is the only evolution mail client on ubuntu Lol
@omgubuntu I'm fine with eog strictly as an image viewer, but for quick edits I love gthumb, which for some reason everyone always seems to forget about 🤔
@shiba Haha, ofc. gThumb. Is it still going?
@omgubuntu little by little. They released 3.8.0 a couple of months ago. It has a very GNOME friendly UI for simple edits, also if photos are geotagged it shows me a map (needs to be compiled against libchamplain) 😃
@shiba CSD! I had no idea… off to check this out.
- Claws Mail / Mutt
- GNU Emacs (+ Org-mode) / Neovim
- Feh / Eye of GNOME
- mpv / SMPlayer
- Quod Libet
