• What do you install right after installation of Antergos ?


    Right after a vanilla installation of any Linux distro, you always want your favorite/must have software.
    I like to hear what others like use and have, this way maybe we can get new must have programs or ideas.

    My list is here, it may have some that come with Antergos and some i forgot.

    yaourt
    git, subversion, bzr
    ccache
    cmake
    gcc-multilib (sometimes humblebundle drm-free games needs me to install some lib32-libs)
    gdb (i like to give bug-reports sometimes)
    linux-headers (because installing network adapter needs them)
    8192cu-dkms (these work so much better for me than the kernel ones)
    dkms

    hddtemp
    hdparm
    gsmartmontools (good to monitor your hdd life’s)
    pm-utils
    gptfdisk
    testdisk (for recover and other fun
    gparted
    bleachbit
    meld (i use it for translating)
    geany
    gedit
    mlocate (to find files)
    filezilla
    tcpdump
    wireshark-qt
    unrar
    p7zip
    xarchiver
    xfce4-goodies
    audacious
    vlc
    steam
    redshiftgui-bin
    caffeine-systray
    nvidia
    nvidia-utils
    grub-imageboot + clonezilla.iso (to make a backup of the install)
    unetbootin (to make bootable usb-sticks)

    Some others i usually also install gimp, bless, libreoffice, scummvm, wine, klavaro or ktouch

    These i remove
    nouveau-dri
    xf86-video-nouveau
    xnoise

  • Well, I’m QT lover, so… and if we omit whole devel meta-package, it will… depends on DE.
    DE (most likely) will be LXQT (RazorQT almost 1 year earlier) or KDE, but sometimes XFCE or some tiling WM (herbstluftwb or i3 or awesome). If I pick KDE, I rather to choose “original” apps. Regarding DE:

    For fun:
    Movies: SMplayer + SMTube (YouTube player, but lately I’ve “discover” Minitube)
    Music: Cantana (most likely, because I really like MPD) or Clementine. QMMP in also nice
    Sounds: QuasMixer (if DE is not KDE)
    Images: Nomacs
    Screenshots: Screengrab
    Games: Steam. Sometimes Desura (depending on the mood :p). And after it lots of other games.

    For keeping up-to-date:
    Internet: Firefox, ofc :3 And always Otter-browser, because I have good feelings about this project.
    IRC: Xchat (no better client for me. I’ve tested them all. Sorry :p)
    IM (lots of protocols): Kadu or Kopete (if KDE)
    Mail: Rather web services. Kontact (KMail) if KDE.
    RSS: QuiteRSS <3

    For work:
    Graphic: GIMP
    IDE: Netbeans lately, SublimeText most of the time.
    PDF: qpdfview
    Sometimes qGit and kdiff3

    For system:
    Terminal: qterminal or yakuake (KDE)
    File manager: PCManFMQT (or Dolphin)
    Archiver: peazip
    Torrent: qBittorrent (or transmission-qt)
    Copy/Paste: Qlipper
    Keyboard (I am using Dvorak layout): qxkb
    Partitioning: Gparted
    SysInfo: I-nex

    But those apps are mostly “graphical only”. Sometimes I want to use only CLI tools, f.e. tmux (terminal multiplexer) or cmus/vimpc/ncmpcpp (music) and few others.

  • My set is very short:
    Disable or uninstall anything related to mail client, chat, RSS, music and videos.
    Install:
    Firefox or Pale Moon,
    Leafpad (I have difficulty to adapt to a tabbed interface of gedit)
    TreePad for Linux, as alternative to NoteCase or Basket.

    Tried to add specialised set of tools for drawing, can’t make it work properly in linux yet.
