Linux Software List



Keep those passwords SAFE!

Pass - the standard unix password manager

Password management should be simple and follow Unix philosophy. With pass, each password lives inside of a gpg encrypted file whose filename is the title of the website or resource that requires the password. These encrypted files may be organized into meaningful folder hierarchies, copied from computer to computer, and, in general, manipulated using standard command line file management utilities.


RAW processing / developing of digital images. Very VERY mighty tool.



this is a questionnaire that might help people decide on a distro.


“Please be careful when using development versions. Create enough backups if you’re using a production database with Password Safe. It is possible that data loss will occur, though I give my best that this will never happen.”



You can now have your desktop icons for good on Gnome desktop.


If you guys enjoy writing, Bibisco is a great tool available on Linux operating systems.

Had been looking for something similar to Scrivener on Linux. This comes pretty damn close.


Lollypop for audio playback. Evince for document reader. Seconding pass for terminal based password manager. Also cowsay and fortune because why aren’t those there already??!!

Just for setting the record straight, you now can use Firefox to watch Netflix and other DRM’d media :wink:.

  • Flameshot ( screenshot software with nice quick editing )
  • Stacer ( user friendly system monitoring program )
  • Etcher ( very easy to use boot stick creator, not sure if it works for Windows boot sicks )


WPS Office ( Microsoft office file support, 700million users cross platform, cloud and mobile support )

This should probably be removed or marked as no longer maintained. Last version was released 2017-06-15 which is a shame as it was a very good looking office suite that showed allot of potential.


Did they cancel development? I loved that software.


They sent out a tweet out more than a year ago stating that development of the Linux software has been put on halt. Hopefully this is only temporary.




Never saw this post, glad they are continuing but they haven’t had an update in more than a year.


Free to download but needs an e-mail address and a user account, but it used to be $60.

Tracktion 7 is Freeware btw not fully FOSS.


& @StrY


Thanks for the mention, glad they are still developing. Guess I’ll be installing WPS again, Libre Office’s UI really doesn’t compare.


No problems bro.


Looks like the big list contains most of the software I use, but there’s also :-

  • graphviz: A collection of command-line tools for generating graphs (in the blobs connected by lines sense of the term) from a text description. Really useful for generating visualisations from scripts.
  • simh: Because who doesn’t want a 3b2 emulator? At least those who used to look after one back in the 1980s.


why are terminal multiplexers not mentioned? are you all scrubs?

…oh its for normie windows alternatives… okay. nevermind.


Yeah, its says so in the description.
