thinkpad-status is a GUI interface to IBM ThinkPad laptop setup. It has been tested on IBM ThinkPad Lenovo Z60m. With its simple interface, you can control and change some settings on an IBM ThinkPad laptop, such as CPU power saving and scaling setup. It also lets you check battery status, thermal status, fan speed, ThinkLight settings, and LED status. Some of these features can also be used on other laptops.
Screen-shooter is a Gnome applet which sits on your panel and allows you to take screenshots at the click of a button. By acting as a frontend to the import program supplied by ImageMagick, it uses the power therein to provide support for a gazillion file-types with adjustable compression. Two buttons are provided, one for an entire desktop screenshot, and one for selecting individual windows or dragging to select rectangular areas. It also supports command substitution in filenames (for date stamps, etc) and has a number of further options. Screen-shooter is still under development, but version 0.8.2 is believed to be stable.
