a2b invokes conversion tools in sequence to convert files from one type to another, possibly performing some extra processing along the way. Itis a wrapper for many programs like gif2png, latex2html, netpbm, mencoder, ffmpeg, oggenc, etc., that can convert content from one type to another. It can covert text, documents, images, audio, and video and more. Some examples: a2b test.mp3 test.ogg; mencoder_opts="-ss 60 -endpos 10" a2b video.avi clip.flv; a2b -g=subtitles dvd://8 movie.sub; a2b -q http://sam.nipl.net/ sam.aac. That last example downloads the author's Web page, converts it to text with lynx -dump, speaks the text with flite or espeak, and converts the audio file to AAC with faac.

The Auto Screenshot Utility for Linux allows users to capture screenshots at regular intervals. Configurable options allow control of the number of screenshots to capture. The capture time interval is also configurable from the main screen of the software. If your desktop environment supports a notification area, you can even minimize the main screen of the software to the notification area/system tray. The screenshot location is configurable as well.

Backshift is a deduplicating (variable-sized, content-based blocks), compressing (xz or bz2) backup program. Full saves and incrementals are pretty indistinct other than the amount of data transmitted, somewhat like with "rsync --link-dest" but without the huge number of hardlinks. It also de-duplicates large file content at a granularity of about 2 megabytes on average; there tends to be a unique copy of each file with size less than around 2 megabytes on average.

Chnorm is a simple command line utility for setting the owner, group, and the mode of given files and directories on a per file/per directory basis, recursively. It is especially useful if you often copy files with brain-dead permissions from filesystems not supporting the Unix permission scheme. It detects executables based on their contents and sets their permissions accordingly.

Launch is a menu for favorite applications and documents. Installing Launch creates a folder in the home directory called "Aliases". Any number of documents and shortcuts can be placed in there and arranged in a hierarchy of subfolders. At login, Launch scans this directory, and creates a menu in the status area from which these files can be opened instantly. There are no other options or features in the menu; just exactly what is found in "Aliases" at login and no more.
