From various trials these are the current results:Replacements still needed:
Bulk Image DownloaderSemi-Resolved, but better needed
Frostwire is the p2p choice, for now, as it supports, Gnutella AND BitTorrent, unfortunately it doesn't do EDonkey. I am after ONE client that supports all p2p protocols or at least G1/G2, AND BitTorrent AND EDonkey. For now Frostwire will suffice.
pan - does thinks some what similar to agent, but it has shortcomings...Rejected:
phex - single protocol, outdated or minimal development if any.
WINE - NO way, not a chance. WINE is like locking the door and leaving the key on a hook with a sign that says house key. No thanks.... If it comes down to needing a winslop program for some reason I would install VMWare Server or Player as it provides a more secure sandbox environment for the winviros. Could work, but issues....
KMyMoney2 and GnuCash - BOTH would probably work, IF, and ONLY IF the OFX support is compiled into these. For what ever reason these are not in the compiled sources available via apt or the installed version. I've looked at doing this myself, but I've not seen clear cut instructions that work to compile with OFX support. If any KMyMoney2 would be the choice.Under review
foxit reader - if its a 1:1 port of the winviros version then it probably will not pass muster, as I rejected the winviros version for the PDF X-Change viewer over issues with the "typewriter" function.The viewer issue:
irfanview does what I want, it reads just about any format you can throw at it. Allows for easy navigation, and quick and easy simple manipulations
such as lighten, darken...gimp is waaaaaaaaaay tooooo much, over kill, for my needs. So is krita if its a photocrap wannabe.
The default image viewer via konqueror would work if the bloody thing would let me sort them in newest to oldest and then navigate thru them that way versus in filename order regardless of what you do.
I've sorted the directory via date order, but as soon as an image is clicked on back to filename order, useless.
xnview for linux is a step child. Is developed behind the winslop version, an updated version has lanquished since January.... the author is obvisouly not interested in the linux community, so pass.
