Monica is a monitor calibration tool using the FLTK library. It works as frontend to xgamma to alter the gamma correction for XFree86 or Xorg. The black point, gray, and color blocks help to find usable settings for a target of 2.2 gamma, the Web, and sRGB standard. FLTK libs are not needed for the binary.
5ball is similar to klines, but bigger (and meant for at least 1024x768 screen res.). It includes many options such as different board size, number of different colors, undo, different themes, etc. The object is to make a line of 5 like- color balls which will eliminate them from the grid. Score as much as you can before the grid fills. 3 new balls are placed randomly on the grid each time you move without making a line.
WP Clipart is an attempt to make a useful clip art package of public domain images for use in word processors. It includes an optional cross-platform viewer/editor written with Python/GTK. The collection contains primarily non-transparent PNG images, mid-tones expanded and large shadow areas minimized (to prevent blocking-up) for inkjet print quality. It is suitable for documents as well as Web graphics, but also has business application. Its primary focus is for educational use (pictures of all US presidents, all country flags alphabetically listed, all US states, historical figures, a sign language alphabet, and a large American history section.)
HTMLpage is a text-based HTML editor. It can use drag'n'drop to generate hyperlinks and image tags with relative links and image sizes. It allows you to create a table by highlighting and copying a table from a document, pasting it into HTMLpage, and then clicking TABLE-ify. It will turn the comma-delimited data into a nice neat HTML table. Plain text can be converted to HTML. It also features spell-checking, color tag generation from a color picker, and keyboard shortcuts for several common HTML tags.
FONTpage is a utility for viewing, managing, and generating images of fonts. It can install and delete per-user fonts as well as (when run as root) system-wide fonts. It displays fonts, has a full alpha-numeric popup window, and allows you to change the font size and color, background color, font face, bold, and italics. It also has the ability to input the text to be displayed, which you can choose to save as a PNG file. It is handy to view fonts and styles quickly, or to make "logo" graphics. And naturally, it is a simple way to try out fonts without dipping into the command line. The source code as well as Slackware packages are available.
GAMMApage is a program to adjust a monitor's gamma setting, either fully or by color. It is capable of setting gamma for most Linux distributions upon login, including those using ATI fglrx_xgamma. It works both for graphical logins or console logins. It only requires write access to the user's home directory, not to any system directories. It includes "preparation" tips with white and black point targets to make gamma corrections effective. This is the pumped-up, Python/GTK version of Monica.
linHDD is a frontend to several functions of basic Linux drive utilities: hdparm, cfdisk, df, and mkfs. It can be used to partition and format a drive as ext2, ext3, Reiserfs, JFS, or XFS (depending upon what your kernel supports). It can also add a second drive, display free space and extended drive information, and test read speed.
Multiplication Flash is a simple flash card program to help kids with their multiplication tables. There is nothing to set up; just open the program and start practicing. It includes a lot of sounds and encouragement, as well as playful disappointment (although sound can be turned off if it gets to be too much for Mom or Dad.). You can practice random problems or select a particular number to work on.
pAgenda is a cross-platform calendar and schedule. It uses the SQLite database to handle multiple schedules with ease in single, small, portable files which are easy to backup or transfer. It is simple and functional, but its strongest feature is how well it prints out a daily schedule with a single click.
GIMP circle brushes provides circle brushes for use as "rubber stamps" in the GIMP. They can be used with one click instead of creating outline circles by making a circle, filling with black, shrinking, and filling with white. The following pixel sizes are provided: 6, 12, 15, 20, 24, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80, 100, 140, 200, 300, 400, 500, and 600.
Absolute Linux is a lightweight Slackware derivative that uses an Icewm, pcmanfm, ROX-Filer, ivman, and others to create a lightweight yet easy to use distribution. Installation is text-based but simplified, and all packages are installed at once. It can run on a Pentium II and above, including SMP systems. A minimum 128MB RAM is recommended. It features ease of browsing any connected device in pcmanfm, and an auto-popup menu for inserted playable media. "Restricted" codecs are available to those eligible via a root-user installer. There is a large range of software included: Google Chromium (compiled on Absolute), OpenOffice, Mplayer, GIMP, K3B, FileZilla, and many more.
GIMP SCRIPT-FUs is a collection of SCRIPT-FUs that have been modified to work with the most recent versions of GIMP. The compiler of this collection is usually not the original author for most of the scripts, but was able to tweak or get them working better in the latest GIMP releases and consolidate them in a sane menu hierarchy.
SVGpage is an application that will render PNG images as SVG files or convert an SVG file to a PNG image. It uses an internal version of Autotrace. This is not a straight conversion to SVG (as there really is no such converter) but it does a fairly literal job with simple shapes, and renders a "painterly" effect for more photographic-style images.
Scripts are frequently updated and/or enhanced -- but the package name for download remains constant -- so those linking to just the download always get served up the latest versions.
