Oboinus is X11 background previewer and setter. In normal working mode, Oboinus provides an interface that helps you to choose a picture to be set as the background. When the --restore option is passed, it sets the background that it has a configuration for and exits immediately (for use in .xinitrc/.xsession or your WM startup files).
QuickTile is a simple attempt to duplicate the basic functionality of WinSplit Revolution for users who don't like the Compiz Grid plugin. It should work on any X11 desktop with PyGTK 2.2+, a window manager that supports the modern range of NETWM hints, and (if you want internal keybinding) python-xlib.
synaptiks is a KDE touchpad tool consisting of a system settings module for touchpad configuration and a tray application for touchpad management. The system settings module allows you to configure basic as well as advanced touchpad settings. The tray application can switch your touchpad on or off, either manually using a global shortcut, or automatically, if external mice are plugged or while the keyboard is active.
