Hi Petter,

some are in Debian, some are not. He seems be using ubuntu:

> Mozilla Firefox + Adblock Plus + Adblock Filterset.G.Updater +
> All-In-One Sidebar + Book Burro + CustomizeGoogle + del.icio.us +
> FireBug + ForecastFox + Gmail Notifier + Greasemonkey + keyconfig +
> Menu Editor + NextPlease + NoScript + PDF Download + Tab Mix Plus +

Those Addons are defn'y not there.

It's in recent Debian branches - thanks for the hint ;)

Maybe it's critical for schools to have Filesharing clients...

ksirc or xchat are there, too.

apt-get install k9copy

not available.

We use KDE.

It's in recent Debian branches - thanks for the hint ;) I wonder why he 
doesn't use gnucash as gnome user.

> OpenSSH. It’s like nothing else. Duh. apt-get install openssh-client 

> Subversion (over SSH). It’s like CVS without the I LOVE YOU / I HATE 
YOU. Also, svn move. My entire home directory is in a private 
Subversion repository, including configuration files. apt-get install 

> MPlayer (and MEncoder). Compiled from source, yo (only because the 
version in the repositories is out of date). It’s the only thing I’ve 
felt the need to recompile, or indeed compile in the first place.

right? rsync -avz, baby. Yes, I know about Unison. Shut the fuck up 
about Unison! I tried it! I don’t like it! It’s okay that you do! It’s 
a big world! We can both co-exist!

There is an update and >200 comments, so please, all check the URL.

Don't forget updating Skolelinux Signpost and corresponding Wiki pages.
