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.
