- Shutter (or ksnapshot) --> Similar to FastStone Capture (desktop image capture)


Shutter does have a lot of GNOME dependencies. Hotshots is Qt-based, like KDE, and will drag in a lot fewer. It's also cross-platform, like almost all Qt applications.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/hotshots/
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: mvp 0.29.0, Pale Moon 27.9.4, wine-staging 3.13, MPC-QT 18.03, Linux kernel 4.17.8, ffmpeg 4.0.2

Kate and gedit - Leafpad


Chromium is the best one for linux, me not understand.. :?: :?: , Chrome also good, but i prefer open source, Chromium feels faster than iceweasel or firefox, i cant live without Chromium or chrome. :shock:

Before kim dotcom left Mega, he wrote that the main reason why Chrome was required to use the service (and not firefox) was because it was the only browser able to cross restricted file directory boundaries. (At least in Win).

He considered that a good thing.

I dont.

I use:

1. Minitube - For watching Youtube videos, since flash is a bitc*.
2. VLC - For playing videos.
3. Audacious - Listening to my music library.
4. Iceweasel - Browser
5. Icedove - E-Mail.
6. XFCE4 Terminal - For, well, shell commands.
7. Thunar - File manager. I have used Pcmanfm before, it's good too.
8. Transmission - BitTorrent client. Very good and light for what it does. Much better than Deluge.
9. LibreOffice Writer - I have other LibreOffice programs installed, but Writer is used the most.
10. Evince - Why on Earth does Adobe Reader still exist?
11. FreeCiv and Supertux - Some amusement :)

ive tried all of them but 11., i will tell you my opinion:
1. Minitube doesnt work in Jessie so to me is crap, i use youtube-dl to play cliente youtube videos:
i.e. open a comand terminal and try.:
vlc $(youtube-dl -g https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CWX46tcTeo)
4. I also use iceweasel for security, but chromium as browsing experience is much better, it feels smoother, faster and cleaner than iceweasel.
5. Icedove , i find it some confuse and laggy, id recommend you kontact in kde, akonady framewerok is unbeatable you will get in love if you give it a chance.
7. Thunar and others files explorer are in my opinion shitty, the only one that worth something is dolphin, i need to have a file explorer that doesnt mess with drag and drop, and dolphin ask you always you drag some files for confirmation, thurdermore dolphin give you tabs, split view, previews of any type, zoom in/out easily, and full integration with others kde apps.
8. Transmission is good, i find it most mature app torrent
10. Okular is much better than evince, i tried both of them, it supports tabs, multiple open files at the same time in tabs, nice square area selection copy/paste, etc.

ask you always you drag some files for confirmation - Look in Preferences. Even a simple FM like PCmanFM will do that if "ask" is selected as the "Default drop action."
previews of any type - Again, most FMs have various settings in Preferences.
split view - Krusader is a good two-pane FM, if one does not mind KDE bloat.
zoom in/out easily - Try Ctrl + mouse wheel.

@bester69:

You've listed some KDE applications, and I find KDE to be very demanding desktop. Thunar is one of the most popular FMs, and it does have most of things you listed. Evince works for me, and it's certainly lighter than Okular. There is weak support for Chromium in Debian. Icedove is almost same as Thunderbird, and it just works. Sylpheed is good too, though

EDIT: You can watch videos on Jessie using Minitube. Install the latest version with Gdebi from it's site:

- Sorry, but thats not true, ive tried nautilus, thunar, and caja and they dont have anywhere drag and drop asking, please show me where to check to apply that function.
- They dont have preview like dolphin which apply to any folder view and any type of files, nautilius and the rest just keep the fix setting in preferences and only show preview pictures, dolphin show you preview of pdf's, pictures, vectorial graphics, movies, words, txts, comics, etc, please dont compare.
- Zoom in/out is like the same you have zoom bar or and zoom buttons, you keep the zoom per type view, again please dont compare.


The main reason i use KDE intead of MATE is because of dolphin (drag and drop asking) and akonady framework (Contacts, mail, calendar of google integrated working great).

KDE is not so demanding like they say, unless not under debian, i've been recently working with 1GB RAM and 1GB CPU, but to be sincere i needed some more RAM so i upgarted to 2Gb RAM, which now i can work work without any kind of problem. KDE consume 680MB with all applications closed. Whith 2Gb RAM y can work propertly, i can open chromium with 20 tabs, and k3b, and Gimp, and Audacious running, and Libreoffice opened at the same time, and works pretty well. Indeed it performance better than XP.

i will try last version Minitube, regards.
