Re: Programs I miss in kde-desktop task

Yes, I have also installed:
 - digikam and digikamimageplugins, to manage my digital camera.
 - tellico, to manage my CD and DVD collection
 - kphotoalbum, to manage my photo collection
 - gtk2-engines-gtk-qt, so that any GTK application I might use
doesn't look too alien.
 - pdf-smp  (PDF Service Menu Pack, requires pdfjam and pdftk) from
http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=37321 . When Lenny is
released, maybe there are better tools (PoDoFo-based, perhaps).
- I also installed Kile, but that's probably not required by most users.

I have also installed:
- basket  ->  a great add-on for kontact
- qca-tls  ->  kopete needs it in order to access some services
- htdig  ->  to generate khelpcenter search indices
- cdrdao movixmaker-2 normalize-audio sox toolame vcdimager  ->  add
interesting features to k3b
- scribus  ->  desktop publishing
- kbugbuster  ->  GUI front end for the KDE bug tracking system
- kompare  ->  it's easier to spot changes in files
- kmymoney2  ->  personal finance manager

Not KDE-related, but I also installed ntpdate and vorbis-tools.

- vim  ->  the vi included lacks many features
- python-urwid  ->  nicer interface for reportbug
- zip unrar-free  ->  zip and rar are popular archiving formats
amongst MS Windows users
- amule  ->  sharing and downloading stuff (within the limits the law allows)
- gentube-dl  ->  to download videos from YouTube
- ffmpeg  ->  to convert videos

- openssh-server  ->  to access my box remotely
- devscripts  ->  to backport wine from unstable
- tree  ->  I think directory trees can be useful
- subversion  ->  most users will not need it
- packages from www.debian-multimedia.org (libdvdcss2, w32codecs, k9copy, etc).

Hope this helps,

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.
