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.
euclid-wm is a minimalist tiling window manager for X11. It is designed to allow quick and easy management of numerous windows entirely from easy-to-learn, Vim-like key-bindings. It seeks to do two things in particular: balance the ease of use common among automatic-layout tiling window managers with the flexibility of manual layout window managers, and create a useful way to handle minimized applications.
Xacpimon is a simple battery life indicator for Linux notebooks that support ACPI power management. On notebooks that use X Window System displays, xacpimon displays a basic progress bar that indicates the percentage of battery charge remaining. The program runs in any X Window System environment and is designed to be flexible enough to handle various notebook power management configurations.
Showkeys is a simple program to display keys being pressed on the screen. It is useful while making presentations and screencasts. The audience will be able to see the keys being pressed. It is similar to key-mon. Key-mon has more features than showkeys. but the latter solves some specific problems: it doesn't use GTK/GNOME; uses libxosd to display keys directly onto the screen; has no floating windows to that always need to be on top (which is very useful if you're using a tiling WM like Xmonad); and has keystroke history. key-mon has keystroke history, but doesn't show modifiers. showkeys does, using an Emacs style key notation.
Xiwtool simplifies connecting a Linux computer's wireless card to a nearby Wireless Access Point. It allows anyone to browse nearby networks and can help you configure a Linux machine to connect to a WAP. It is compatible with any Linux system with a graphical desktop and wireless card, and can configure wireless connections on most systems which use ifup and ifdown to connect to the Internet.
Wnotes are small, self-contained text notes for X Window System desktops. You can create, type, cut-and-paste, and save notes in any combination you like. Wnotes let you store notes and their window configurations using any database which accepts input from the Unix shell. It is compatible with most Linux and Unix desktops. The source code package includes sdb, a simple note database written as a bash script, and other examples of how to use Wnotes.
xlife is a laboratory for experimenting with cellular automata. It supports loadable rulesets and palettes, different topologies, and up to 256-state cellular automata. It has rules and patterns for Life, Brian's Brain, Perrier's Loops, Langton's Ants and Loops, Wireworld, E.F. Codd's 1975 UCC automaton, some Prisoner's Dilemma games, and many others. It is very fast for step-by-step mode, bounded grid, and chaotic patterns. It has several unique features: a historical mode, a pseudocolor mode, and n-state statistics. It has been developed since 1989. The modern version of Xlife began its history in 2011.
