avahi-discover
"Just a GUI for avahi-browse command. Shows tree of discovered services and nothing else"
4
mkvtoolnix
"Works great! and the GUI is highly recommended"
5
mkvtoolnix-gui
"Easy to use and very powerful."
5
bootchart
"great tool, but lacks documentation, for example: How to disable it? Where is the GUI of pybootchartgui? Etc etc.."
4
nautilus-gksu
"Very useful"
5
nautilus-open-terminal
"Vital"
5
gextractwinicons
"AMAZING little app! Easily extracts icons from EXEs and DLLs. Read groups and individual icons, save in PNG and ICO, preserving all attributes in filename. VERY helpful"
5
seahorse-plugins
"Necessary for integration with Nautilus (you can Encrypt/Decrypt/Sign files using right-click!) Just remember to REBOOT for integration with Nautilus work! (maybe LOGOUT will do it)"
5
seahorse
"Really powerful! At first, I thought this was only a tool to manage Gnome's passwords... but you can actually do SO much more... create and edit SSH keys, OpenPGP keys (using GPG), Publsh to key servers, and even add a picture to your key! SO good! (and it gets better if you use the seahorse-plugins companion for nautilus)"
5
libfile-mimeinfo-perl
"Neat commands! MUCH more options than xdg equivalents"
5
lshw-gtk
"Very nice! And truly hardware-oriented, unlike hardinfo, which focus way too much on software side (I dont care about free memory, IP connections, filesystems or kernel modules - I want to know my memory manufacturer, model, clock, etc!)"
4
ghex
"Simple, easy, efficient. Very nice app"
5
trash-cli
"Does the job perfectly! Ive been using for like 6 months, awesome. But today ive found gvfs-trash, which i guess do the same"
4
assogiate
"Intuitive, solid GUI, great documentation. Great features (lots of options to recognize a file pattern, mime parent and alias, etc). Its one of those must-have tools for configuring and customizing your desktop.. Should be default in any distro"
5
system-config-samba
"Very nice GUI! I wish all tools in Mint/Ubuntu have GUI like this"
5
quicksynergy
"Simply AMAZING! And MUCH better than its Windows counterpart. Easy and intuitive."
5
gnome-network-admin
""Official" GUI tool to change computer name. Can change both /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts. Why this is not shipped as default anymore?"
5
acetoneiso
"THE best tool to convert to ISO, also to mount/extract some ISO"
5
teeworlds
"Fun ad addictive"
4
hedgewars
"Amazing, and very well polished. Top-notch Worms clone."
5
emesene
"The best Linux MSN alternative. Has many features and its out-of-the-box the closest one you can get to the "real thing", both interface and feature-wise. But i really miss a chat history Import... (none of them have)"
4
wine
"Wine is absolutely awesome. I use it a lot for old, little Win apps. Does a remarkable job for large ones too! The more i use it, the more impressed i am by how good it is!"
5
geany
"Simple & sweet"
4
skype
"Skype is vital, and im SO glad we have an official linux version from repos. Interface looks very outdated, but it does have all the main features (Webcam, Chat, SMS, SkypeOut, 3-way-conferences, etc). I loved the clean, spartan interface (i hate the bloated windows one). Too bad is not open source. At least the interface could be."
4
dosbox
"A must for old gamerz"
5
computertemp
"It only detected a single sensor from a single souce (Kernel i2c hwmon), thus making it quite useless. sensors-applet is a MUCH better choice. On the plus side, this one has a log feature."
2
sensors-applet
"By far the best sensor/temperature/monitoring gnome applet ive found. Detected 11 sensors out-of-the-box (4 voltage, 4 fans, 3 temps). GUI is powerful, flexible and very intuitive. Can customize icon, low/high and label for EACH sensor... great!"
5
transmission
"Ok, interface is clean and app is lightweight. But its WAY too spartan. I think Deluge is a much better choice, and still simple and clean enough."
2
gnome-disk-utility
"Great tool, has features i miss in gParted: fast scan, improved GUI, and mount."
4
aisleriot
"I LOVE it, specially BACKBONE variation! Really addictive! This is NOT like Solitaire: it has more than 80 card games, Solitaire being just ONE of them!"
5
gnome-games
"Aisleriot (Solitaire) is AWESOME, specially BACKBONE variant. Sudoku and Mines are also great"
5
virtualbox-guest-additions
"Essential companion for VirtualBox-OSE"
5
gnome-gmail-notifier
"Integrates smoothly with desktop, supports multiple accounts, but no Google Apps support. It is JUST a notifier: shows no header, from, subject, anything... just lets you open your WWW browser."
3
checkgmail
"It works, but lots of issues: always ask for pwd when opening browser, 404 when i glick on email subject, doest work with Goggle Apps accounts, sometimes lists shows in wrong place. Ill look for an alternative."
2
virtualbox-ose
"Its almost too good to be tue! It works frawlessly, TONS of options and features, and easy (and complete) GUI"
