Greatest DVD Player for Linux ever, but....
I do not use any fancy Window Managers on my system (GNOME or KDE) and I am very happy with WindowMaker which only requires GTK+
I use MPlayer for playing videos, but not DVDs.
Ogle is excellent, but I can't get the GUI component to work without GTK+ Would it be difficult to modify the Ogle-gui component to work on computers that have GTK but not GNOME or Glade libraries?
Sylpheed is the best for email, but for news groups...
Sylpheed is one of the best all round mail clients I have ever used, but I can't call it the best news client yet (although I hope this changes soon).
With binary news groups, it has problems decoding binary messages encoded with uuencode. I've been told I can save the file and use uuencode to convert the file into an attachment, but realistically, it's easier to use another news client. Instead of handling these attachments, sylpheed says "
begin 666 <filename>
<insert rubbish here>
Other mail/news clients seem to handle this very well (e.g. Mozilla's news client), what would it take Sylpheed to have the same functionality?
Please! Someone help us out here, there's too many ignorant O.E people out there posting their bogus attachments that Sylpheed can't read, but something still has to be done.
