xJigsaw combines xjig with a simple GUI which allows easy creation of jigsaw puzzles. There is no need to install xJigsaw, and it does not need xjig. Everything is in a single file. Just download it, unzip it, and run it. It works with png, gif, jpg, tif, and bmp images, and offers image previews. The user can fix the rotation angle of puzzle pieces when dragging and can choose different shapes for the puzzle pieces. Puzzle pieces snap to 90 degree angles. The user can swap mouse buttons, set the width of the puzzle, and set the number of puzzle pieces.
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.
