The Enhanced TightVNC Viewer, SSVNC, adds encryption security to VNC connections. The package provides a GUI for Windows, MacOS X, and Unix that automatically starts up an STUNNEL SSL tunnel for SSL or ssh/plink for SSH connections to any VNC server and then launches the VNC Viewer to use the encrypted tunnel. On Unix and MacOS X, a VNC viewer with many new features is provided. The short name for this project is "ssvnc", for SSL/SSH VNC viewer.
The GUIShell project is a collection of utilities facilitating the use of the GTK+ toolkit in shell scripts through the gtkshell utility. The ACE configuration environment provides sample scripts utilizing gtkshell for desktop utilities. rootcat provides the ability to display messages to the root window using Xft, allowing one to write status display scripts.
vlock is a program to lock one or more sessions on the Linux console. This is especially useful for Linux machines which have multiple users with access to the console. One user may lock his or her session(s) while still allowing other users to use the system on other virtual consoles. If desired, the entire console may be locked and virtual console switching disabled.
Laptop Mode Tools allows you to control various power management settings based on AC/battery power state. Among other things, it controls Linux's "Laptop Mode" feature that allows your hard drive to spin down for extended periods. It can also control CPU frequency scaling and screen blanking timeouts (both terminal and X). It supports automatic hibernation when battery is low.
Viewglob is a filesystem visualization add-on for Bash and Zsh. It tracks the command line and environment of any number of interactive shells (local and remote). A graphical display follows the currently active terminal, listing the contents of directories relevant to its shell and highlighting file selections and potential name completions dynamically.
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.
im-chooser is a GUI frontend application featured with IMSettings to choose the input method you want to use. It can also disable input methods entirely on the desktop. This allows you to pick an input method and switch it on demand without restarting either your applications or your desktop.
