10 KDE Applications for Increasing Productivity
The selection was made on the basis of features, configurability, ease of use and integration with the KDE desktop; in order.
Without further ado..
- Krusader: Krusader is a fully configurable twin-panel file manager. It incorporates several interesting featuresand integration with utilities like kdiff3.
- Kontact : This is a front-end for KDE Personal information management. It is an email client, note-taker, journal, usenet, newsfeed, time-tracker and many other relevant applications built into one.
- Yakuake :The famous Quake style drop-down terminal.
- Kompare : Visual diff(and patch) tool, very useful for programmers working in a team.
- Kate : The ‘mult-ipurpose’ light-weight text editor, with a plethora of configuration options.
- Digikam : This is one of the best photo-management apps around.
- kget : Kget is a powerful download manager, packing quite a punch behind its simple and innocent interface.
- Ksnapshot : This isn’t really a full fledged application, but is easily the most flexible screenshot taking tool.
- K3b: k3b is the default disk burning suite for the kde desktop, with a full set of feature one needs to do just about anything to a disk. (Happy ‘Kreating’!!)
- Kdenlive : This is arguably the best non-linear video editor for Linux desktop users. (Note that Ubuntu’s default kde package versions do not support kdenlive yet)
