A C library for interacting with FBUI, which is an in-kernel windowing system for Linux. The library provides window management, drawing, event management, image manipulation, and a PCF font facility. Included with libfbui is a set of programs that use the library, including a clock, load monitor, terminal, JPEG/TIFF image viewer, MPEG2 player, two window managers, a benchmark program, etc. Both FBUI and libfbui are defunct projects, but the code contained in libfbui may prove useful for other projects.
FBUI is a small, fast in-kernel GUI windowing system for Linux that supports overlapping windows and windows on every virtual console. Its core is currently about 50kB large. See "libfbui" for sample programs and API. This project, while fun and challenging to develop, is now defunct in recognition of the security problems that putting a windowing system inside the kernel gives rise to. The code base remains available, however, in case parts of it may prove useful to the public.
Sagasu is a GNOME tool to find strings in multiple files. The user specifies the search directory and the set of files to be searched. Double-clicking on a search result launches a user command that can for example load the file in an editor at the appropriate line. The search can optionally ignore CVS directories. Sagasu is a Japanese word that means "to search."
im-chooser is a GUI frontend application featured with IMSettings to choose the input method you want to use. It can also disable input methods entirely on the desktop. This allows you to pick an input method and switch it on demand without restarting either your applications or your desktop.
Worker is a file manager for the X Window System with the classical two panel interface. It features a fully graphical configuration, while still allowing manual editing of the configuration file without the need to restart Worker. Any external program can be integrated easily into the GUI using buttons, hotkeys, and file type actions. Worker uses file recognition by file content or by filename extension (or both). Different actions with completely configurable commands can be assigned to each file type.
Linux Desktop Testing Project is aimed at producing a high quality test automation framework and cutting-edge tools that can be used to test the GNU desktop and improve it. It uses the "Accessibility" libraries to poke through the application's user interface. The framework also has tools to record test-cases based on user-selection on the application.
Haiku (formerly known as OpenBeOS) is an operating system designed from the ground up for desktop computing. Inspired by the BeOS, it aims to provide users of all levels with a personal computing experience that is simple yet powerful, and free of any unnecessary complexities. It aims for source and binary compatibility with BeOS R5.
ThinLinc is a fast and versatile remote desktop solution. It is based on open source software such as TigerVNC, SSH, and PulseAudio. The ThinLinc server software can be used to publish Linux/Unix desktops and applications to thin clients. The system also supports Windows Remote Desktop Services and VirtualBox. ThinLinc supports redirection of sound, serial ports, disk drives, local printers, and Smart Card readers. Clients are available for a wide variety of platforms. When used with the VirtualGL software, ThinLinc can deliver high performance graphics with OpenGL applications in a thin client environment.
