desktop task: package list
talking about the gnome desktop task ( don't know about other
environments) and the packages that should go along.
i want to propose a minimal (or "normal") desktop task and a full
functional desktop task.
by this i mean that a full desktop task should cover every area of
desktop usage such as:
- desktop accessories:
. desktop search (beagle)
. chm visualiser ( xchm or gnochm)
- development ( i think development tools are not needed)
- system tools
. gtkam ( today everyone has a digital foto machine)
. camorama (we cam enable)
. openoffice.org with gnome integration ( the few integration)
. glabels ( for cd covers, labels, and others)
. contacts ( address book that integrates with evolution)
- sound and video
. Istanbul session recorder ( it's for fun)
. totem with all available codecs
. frozen buble
==== other stuff ===
= nautilus and gnomevfs related
to support every fs:
. smbfs ( and smbclient?)
. nfs (?)
= version control clients =
= drivers =
(people will be satisfied if their hardware just work)
- printer drivers
. ( etc)
= file roller =
. zip (unzip)
. rar (unrar)
( some more)?
= development tools =
. some? or none?
= administration =
. gdebi ( to install simple .deb packages)
what do you think of this?
