Arronax is a plugin for Nautilus (the GNOME default file manager) to create and modify application starters (".desktop files"). It adds the menu item "Create starter for this file" to the context menu (the menu you get when you right-click a file in the file manager). If the file is an application starter, you get the item “Modify this starter” instead. If you have icons enabled on your desktop, Arronax adds the menu item “Create starter” to your desktop’s context menu.
Clickity is a tray-icon program to simulate mouse clicks and drags that are hard to perform because of limited hand use or limited pointing hardware. It runs on any X system with tray icons, as well as Microsoft Windows, and doesn't require an integrated desktop environment or accessiblity framework to be installed. Clickity can be activated by holding and then releasing the left mouse button or by moving the pointer and letting it dwell in position. Actions include single clicks, double clicks, and drags of the left, right, and middle buttons, as well as scroll wheel motion.
To Do Quick is a very fast, simple, and basic GUI text editor with two features that help you manage your list of tasks. First, items can be prioritized by moving them up or down without cutting/pasting. Second, items can be marked "done", which timestamps them and moves them to the bottom of the list.
Xdgmenumaker is a command line tool that generates application menus using xdg information by scanning *.desktop files in all $XDG_DATA_DIRS/applications directories. All applications are sorted according to the main categories as specified by freedesktop.org. Generated menu entries are localised according to the current user locale settings. It currently supports generation of menus for Fluxbox, IceWM, and WindowMaker. Icons from the current GTK+ icon theme can be included in the menus, when they are supported by the output format.
Zim is a graphical text editor used to maintain a collection of wiki pages. Each page can contain links to other pages, simple formatting, and images. Pages are stored in a folder structure, like in an outliner, and can have attachments. Creating a new page is as easy as linking to a nonexistent page. All data is stored in plain text files with wiki formatting. Various plugins provide additional functionality, like a task list manager, an equation editor, a tray icon, and support for version control. Zim can be used to keep an archive of notes, take notes during meetings or lectures, organize task lists, draft blog entries and email, or do brainstorming.
notification-thing is a full-featured implementation of the Desktop Notifications Specification.
