*nix tools you can't live without - Page 4

post #31 of 52
Although I use Konsole most, I mentioned Eterm because it has some laudable features, including themed backgrounds (not only to "dress up a desktop" but quick recognition of differences since any instance or even tab can have any theme). Before KDE and XFCE fleshed out their "Run" boxes, I launched Eterm with a script upon login so that it was 3 lines tall and the width of my screen just above the taskbar... fairly handy. Plus, as per the website

Eterm works on Solaris, Linux, HP-UX, AIX, FreeBSD, and just about any other flavor of UNIX out there. It works on any windowmanager/desktop environment, including AfterStep, BlackBox, 4DWM, CDE, KDE, GNOME, fvwm, and even twm,

No big deal. It's just a terminal, but a nice one. It's nice enough it is a separate project from Enlightenment, not requiring it at all.

Enlightenment's terminal is Terminology, not Eterm.

I don't really have any apps I can't live without. As long as I have a web browser and Bash, I'm fine. I use Terminator as my terminal as I don't really have the time to learn Tmux. Screen works well enough, and I've recently learned the magic of :sp, :vsp, and :tabnew in Vim.

To be fair, you could do all that with Konsole too. Konsole has even been ported to Windows. Though I don't think you couldinstall Konsole without at least kdelibs, which is a pretty massive dependency for a terminal frown.gif

I'm trying to say that one term is better than the other though, just that as you said you also liked Konsole then you could do the skinning stuff on that too.

I think they're changing the kdelibs stuff for Frameworks 5. One of the goals if I remember right was to make it easier for devs to use just the functionality they need instead of the entire kdelibs bundle so that all of kdelibs doesn't get pulled in every time.
post #37 of 52
It'll be good if they do manage that. It always struck me as somewhat retarded to expect anyone who wanted to use one or two of KDE libraries to include 200MB+ of dependencies. In fact that's the very reason I used to target Qt rather than KDE back when I was experimenting with GUI development.

No love for nc?

  • nc
  • ssh/scp
  • otool
  • gdb
  • fs_usage
  • less

And I'm also a fan of nano. I've always just been too lazy to learn vi, although I know some vi.

Very true. Did you buy it? I'm still using the older version from the free days, but I'm thinking I'll probably have to buy it, soon.

I did but I got a discount because I donated..

CCC is a program that I would love to see ported to Linux there is just no replacement for it in the Linux work with it's functionality

I sometimes use ncat, but seldom have a need for nc since the same can be accomplished with the other tools I use regularly.
