How about x-terminal-session? It's a package I made a while back (link) that adds an option for "Terminal" to your GDM (or KDM) menu. The option launches the default terminal (x-terminal-emulator) and the default window manager (x-window-manager) to make it look pretty.
In Mint's case, this is gnome-terminal and metacity. This also causes gnome-settings-daemon to load the desktop background, which was unintentional but is something I like.

Hi, thanks for this thread. Here are a few of my suggestions for the repo.

-----

Mangler: Ventrilo compatible VOIP client.
http://www.mangler.org/ (homepage)
http://www.mangler.org/download/ (32-bit and 64-bit deb packages)

A lot of users on the Mint forums are already using this with good results.

-----

Nestopia: NES emulator
http://rbelmont.mameworld.info/?page_id=200 (homepage + sources)
http://nestopia.sourceforge.net/ (Windows version homepage)

Linux version of the popular NES emulator for Windows.

-----

MAME (SDLMAME): Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator
http://mamedev.org/ (homepage)
http://rbelmont.mameworld.info/?page_id=163 (SDLMAME homepage)
http://rbelmont.mameworld.info/?p=519 (SDLMAME and MAME merged)
http://www.bannister.org/forums/ubbthre ... #Post58111 (SDLMAME compile instructions for 0.137 and later)

Version 0.136 is in the repo, but I'd like to see it updated to the current stable version. As of version 0.136u1, SDLMAME has been merged with MAME so there will no longer be dedicated SDLMAME releases.

-----

zfs-fuse: ZFS
http://zfs-fuse.net/ (homepage)
http://zfs-fuse.net/releases (32-bit and 64-bit packages and sources)

This is also something that's already in the repo that I'd like to see updated. The current stable release is 0.6.9 and the version in the repo is 0.6.0.

-----

Wine: Run Windows thingamajigs
http://www.winehq.org/ (homepage)
http://www.winehq.org/download (packages and sources)

Already in the repo but would be nice to have it updated to the new version 1.2.

-----


Those are all the suggestions I have for now. Hope I'm not asking too much. Thanks a lot!

Package request for updating to latest Me-TV v1.3.1.
Current package in repository v1.1.2. Unless there is something easy I am missing to update this package to the latest version.

Hi,

I would be very fine to have KeePass Password Safe 2.12 (a password manager) in repos. KeePass Password Safe 2.12 is much better than KeepassX on several ways:

1) It has a better and more attractive GUI
2) It support KeepassX files but it also support a newer and better file type, with more capabilities.
3) It is OSI Certified Open Source Software
4) Its developer add new features frequently

More information can be found at: http://keepass.info
Source Packages are at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/keepass ... p/download

Thanks in advance.

I suppose most apps from thread - viewtopic.php?f=61&t=14361 or
viewtopic.php?f=47&t=9463

But as for my experiences - 'a must' are these ones:

YAGF :) - http://symmetrica.net/cuneiform-linux/yagf-en.html
(latest) Tor (not like currently just reading from Tor home page that Ubuntu has too old Tor in repo :lol: )
(g)cdemu - http://cdemu.sourceforge.net/pkg_gcdemu.php
Linux/Unix is about freedom, Windows about slavery.

Mind mapping - Freeplane!

Postby jessejazza on Mon Nov 01, 2010 5:38 pm

Currently in the repos is labyrinth, VYM, Freemind. In the last couple of years developers have done quite a bit of work in this field. Neither of these are that pictorial which is what i'm hoping for to use in schools.

The following recent applications have taken quite a step forward. I have compiled in the past with limited success but when there's a problem i haven't got the technical knowledge to remedy problems. I'd be particularly grateful if you'd consider Freeplane (developed from Freemind with added features) but the others aswell if it's not too much work. There must be other folk that do Mind Mapping. Xmind is ok as is vym but i think Freeplane promises to be better.

They are listed here

Freeplane website

thanks

GNUcash 2.4 is out, -sort of-. The GNUcash sourceforge page shows 2.4 is out (http://sourceforge.net/projects/gnucash/), and I think it would be handy if it would be built for 9 and 10. Is there any chance this could get done?

I'm kind of new here, so if this isn't the right place to request this, please let me know and point me to a better location for it.

This was started forever and a day ago. So not sure if the thread still applies. Guess it can't hurt to add a wish list item though ... xfce version 2.8 < That's actually assuming it's better, xfce version 2.6 is already available in the Mint repos. Works fine for me.
