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.
Lunchbox is a dynamic tiling window manager for X11. It allows windows to be resized by squishing them against the edge of the screen. In a step away from the desktop metaphor, all programs are given a separate workspace and unique arrangement of windows, and any window can become the desktop. It offers an in-built scalable tab replacement called the Title Menu, which allows any window to be swapped with any other window that fits, allowing very fine grained control over the layout of the screen. Finally, although many windows default to tiling, any window can be changed to a Floating mode, which dialog boxes default to.
MeeGo is a Linux-based mobile and embedded operating system. It brings together the Moblin project, headed up by Intel, and Maemo, by Nokia, into a single open source activity. MeeGo currently targets platforms such as netbooks and entry-level desktops, handheld computing and communications devices, in-vehicle infotainment devices, connected TVs, and media phones. All of these platforms have common user requirements in communications, application, and Internet services in a portable or small form factor. The MeeGo project will continue to expand platform support as new features are incorporated and new form factors emerge in the market.
RoseThorn is a cross-platform library for 2D and 3D games running on GNU/Linux (and possibly other Unix-like OSes) and Windows. Features include: hardware accelerated 2D and 3D rendering; Ogg and WAV Sound support with OpenAL; Lua scripting; BMP, JPEG, and PNG image loading and saving (from screenshots); easily created and modified user interfaces with XML and CSS, combined with Lua event handling; separate 2D and 3D libraries; support for multiple fonts in both TTF and bitmap formats; support for OBJ, 3DS, MD5, and RTM model formats; skeletal animation (a work in progress); support for UDP and TCP networking; thread and mutex support; a Simple Shader API; 2D animated sprites; and some basic cryptography support. There is simple event management, with key/mouse bindings easily customized from the in-game console, config file, command line, or GUI.
Scheture is a hierarchical schematic capture system with built-in netlisters for Spice and Verilog. It has built-in plotting for Postscript, HP PCL and HP GL/2 printers and plotters. It includes a set of symbol primitives, and allows user-defined symbol primitives to allow for extensive customization of primitive properties. The system supports wire buses and iterated instances. The system also supports global pins and implicitly connected pins on a specific sheet. Supported platforms include Solaris and Linux (32- and 64-bit).
Sxwd is a multi-purpose tool for dealing with xwd images. Xwd is a C++ class which was created by merging xwd.c and xwud.c from the X11R6 distribution and porting them to GNU C++. Sxwd is a command line wrapper to exercise the member functions of xwd. Sxwd was created to manipulate the colormaps of 8-bit PsuedoColor XWD images in the production of custom USGS topographical maps. A few additional features have been added.
