    What's your favourite non-standard Linux software?


    Hey guys,
    What do you guys immediately install when you get a new distro/installation of linux and the programs you use daily and couldn’t do without?

    I’ll start:

    ♦ powerline - statusline plugin for vim and other
    ♦ htop - top but better
    ♦ wine - run windows programs
    ♦ redshift - colour temperature adjustment tool
    ♦ virtualbox - virtualization

    • zim - notes taking application
    • reflector - mirrors optimizer
    • fsarchiver - partitions and dirs backup and restore
    • gparted - partitions editor
    • geany or kate - text editor
    • meld or kompare - files and dirs comparing

    • zsh with oh-my-zsh (agnoster) / solarized color scheme / powerline fonts
    • nano - my former choice of text editors
    • vim - still trying to get into it
    • dropbox
    • truecrypt - for legacy reasons
    • texstudio - imho best LaTeX GUI (texlive+xetex)
    • multimedia stuff (rapid-photo-downloader 0.9.0b2 / darktable / geeqie / kdenlive / vlc / codecs)
    • keepass2 - password manager
    • filezilla - sftp to my server
    • ruby + jekyll + git - static website generator

    That’s all I can think of right now …

    I don’t have many, but having just installed Antergos, the first thing I added was:

    • ICE-SSB - a single-site browser that lets me set up web pages as applications. I use it for things like Netflix, gMail, and Google Calendar

    I also plan to install Audacity and some sort of video editor very soon.
