RemiX diskless is a complete and powerful graphical client system, suitable for X server remote desktops or Windows Terminal Server clients. The aim of this project is simplicity of installation and configuration. Key features include X server autoconfiguration and other auto-detection tools, the possibility to customize a single thin client, accessibility of local resources from a desktop client, a Linux desktop client and a Windows desktop client (multi-boot), remote audio (for both systems), localization of user client messages, an automatic installation script, the option to install to a USB stick, and very speedy installation procedures (2 to 4 minutes per client). The expected time between power-on and appearance of the login screen is 15 seconds on a machine with an 800MHz processor and 128MB RAM.
Qodem is a re-implementation of the Qmodem DOS shareware communications package, updated for more modern uses. Major features include Unicode support, scrollback buffer, capture file, screen dump, dialing directory, keyboard macros, script support, Xmodem, Ymodem, Zmodem, and Kermit. It can connect over serial port, telnet, ssh, rlogin, and command line, and supports multiple terminal emulations including ANSI.SYS, Avatar, VT100/102, VT220, and Linux.
terminal_colors is a tool to display a terminal color chart for 8, 16, 88, and 256 color terminals. It provides all the functionality of the various similar scripts found around the Web with some additional bells and whistles. It automatically detects 8, 16, 88, and 256 color capabilities (via ncurses) and displays the appropriate color charts. It can display the colors as blocks or (2D) cubes, optionally with color values overlaid in int or hex values. It can show the full rgb text string as well. It can also show the display with a vertical (default) or horizontal orientation. It has the option of additional padding and supports -h --help as well. It also works as a utility for converting between 256 and 88 color values.
5x9 and 5x10 are two X11 fonts intended for use with xterm or other programs requiring readable small fonts. At only 5 pixels wide, they are particularly well suited to small laptop screens, allowing two 80 column windows side by side on an 800x600 screen (albeit with no room for window frames), or three windows across with room to spare on a 1280x1024 screen. The fonts implement VT100 line-drawing characters. Bolding is not directly supported; xterm does adequate bolding by duplicating pixels.
The sniffy project can trace/log the data of any pseudo terminal in the system. Due to the way the terminal works, such a terminal trace provides complete information of what happened on the terminal screen, and sniffy is able to display/replay this information. It consists of a kernel module able to connect/hook on the pseudo terminal, a program to display the contents of any pseudo terminal on the fly, a daemon process tracing the pseudo terminal content into the file, and a replay program to replay any stored pseudo terminal session.
Bashrun provides a powerful application launcher by running a specialized bash session in a small terminal window, conveniently providing bash features like tab completion and history. Additional features include user-configurable rules for automatically launching certain commands in a new terminal window, looking up manual and info pages, performing dict and Google queries, defining bookmarks for Web pages, or piping command output to the clipboard. Users can add more functionality by defining arbitrary rules for rewriting command lines based on regular expression matches and file test operators. This makes new features like file associations or Web shortcuts trivial to implement.
