Doodle is a desktop search engine for Linux. It searches your hard drive for files using pattern matching on meta-data. It extracts file-format specific meta-data using libextractor and builds a suffix tree to index the files. The index can then be searched rapidly. It is similar to locate, but can take advantage of information such as ID3 tags. It is possible to do full-text indexing using the appropriate libextractor plugins. It also supports using FAM to keep the database up-to-date.
x11vnc allows one to remotely view and interact with real X displays (i.e. a display corresponding to a physical monitor, keyboard, and mouse) with any VNC viewer. It is designed to be compatible with all Unix variants and Mac OS X, and depends on a small set of standard libraries. It supports SSL/TLS and VeNCrypt encryption, Unix password logins, single port access, Zeroconf, file transfer, and UltraVNC extensions. It is part of the LibVNCServer project.
fpwdman manages a file of passwords that is accessed by one master passphrase. It can import and export password files and makes it possible for encrypted password files to easily be transferred across operating systems. It supports multiple password files, which could be used when a number set of system administrators share a site-wide file of passwords for common tasks, while each maintaining a file of personal passwords. It also exports and imports password files to and from plain text and optionally uses user-generated random entropy. The source includes two command lines tools to encrypt and decrypt: ensbc and desbc.
histbackup makes incremental backups of a directory tree in a set of directories named by dates, or date-time if the date already exists. Its companion script histbackup-prune controls the archive growth. The new backup is prepopulated by hardlinks of each file from the previous backup and then updated with rsync(1). This arranges that the only new content of each new backup is fresh copies of the changed files. In this way each backup directory is a full copy of the source directory but the disk space cost is that of an incremental backup. Because it uses rsync, it is possible to efficiently backup remote directories in this manner.
Moab Cluster Manager is a graphical user interface (GUI) that interacts with Moab Workload Manager. It can connect over ssh, locally, or even use a snapshot of the system. It visually shows the entire cluster with a breakdown of nodes, reservations, jobs, and triggers by timeline, calendar, and table. In addition, Moab Cluster Manager supports graphs and reports of users, groups, accounts, classes, jobs, violations, etc.
AllTray is a program you can use on UNIX and UNIX-like systems, such as GNU/Linux or FreeBSD, running the X Window System. It is used to “dock” application software into the system tray (also known as the “notification area”). AllTray aims to be standards-compliant and work with any desktop environment/window manager+system tray combination that is also standards-compliant.
GoFun is an implementation of the Desktop Entry Specification found at freedesktop.org. It manages Icons that represent applications, links, and devices. So it is a desktop itself and can be used to start regularly needed applications and maintenance tasks. It is more than an application launcher, since it has many multimedia features and allows you to have a personalized desktop.
