OneFinger is a general-purpose GUI for composing CLI commands with the mouse. Although entirely graphical, it does not attempt to hide the underlying CLI language. It increases your productivity over classical hand-typing by caching commands typed into terminals, which tend to be highly repetitive. Repeated commands can be selected from a list, ordered by last usage time. It includes an integrated file browser that helps you insert filenames without typing them. and allows you to see only those programs that make sense with a given file.
KDocker is a program that helps you to dock any application in the system tray. Very few applications have docking capabilities, and even if they do, sometimes they are specific to desktops such as GNOME or KDE. This makes it possible to dock OpenOffice.org, XMMS, Firefox, Thunderbird, and other programs and works for KDE, GNOME, XFCE, and probably many other environments.
Apcon is a systemtray application for KDE that makes it very easy for users to specify and manage different network/connection profiles and connect/disconnect to/from them. A user can also get several details about a connection. An integrated wizard leads the user through this process. The idea of Apcon is based on IBM's Access Connections Tool for the Thinkpads.
iswitchwin lets you easily switch between windows on your workspaces by typing (part of) the caption of the desired window. It was inspired by iswitch-window.jl, which was originally written by Topi Paavola for the Sawfish window manager. iswitchwin uses libwnck to control your window manager and has been primarily written for Metacity and the GNOME environment. It should work with any window manager that is compatibile with EWMH.
Sunbeam and moonshine are a KDE kicker panel applet and application pair that are intended to be used (together or in isolation) as an alternative to the current kicker panel. Apart from this, the functionality of the software has been somewhat extended to enable features like file and application search and browsing facilities, favourites, a window list, and desktop access.
KBackup is a program that lets you back up any directories or files. It uses an easy-to-use directory tree to select the things to back up. The program was designed to be very simple to use so that it can be used by those who are not computer experts. The storage format is the well known tar format, compressed with bzip2 or gzip. It also includes German, French, Italian, and Russian translations for the user interface and English and German translations of the handbook.
BlueProximity helps add a little more security to the desktop. It does so by detecting a certain Bluetooth device, most likely a mobile phone, and keeping track of its distance. If it is moved away from the computer and the distance is above a certain level (no measurement in meters is possible) for a given time, it automatically locks the desktop (or starts any other shell command wanted). Once away, the computer awaits its master's return: if the device is nearer than a given level for a set time, the computer unlocks without any interaction (or starts any other shell command wanted).
