O ne of the difficulties in moving from Windows to GNU-Linux is the fear of not having programs to which you are accustomed, or at least equivalent. This is nothing more than an urban legend, carried out by those who have an absolute monopoly and would like the death of open source. Course of a professional who uses Photoshop to work rather than Gimp, there is nothing to say, but all the others who use Photoshop to correct your photos or red eyes, I laugh, and make me think .... that if they had to buy it, the cocks that they would use. The software you pay for, given that there are people behind who works there, or should rely all'opensource that it has so many programs, not forgetting that free does not mean free, because in this world there are professional programs for a fee. Below are some examples from LinuxALT .

For those interested to know the weather forecast, there is a nice little program by the name of WeatherBug, which runs under

Linux, and lots of weather information, not only on large cities, but also on many paesoni and villages. You can

download the deb package:

wget http://wdownload.weatherbug.com/linux/weatherbug-1.0-1.deb

or what rpm:

wget http://wdownload.weatherbug.com/linux/weatherbug-1.0-1.rpm

make sure you have installed:

libswt3.2-gtk-java

install the deb package:

WeatherBug dpkg-i-1.0-1.deb

You also have the option to install the Weather from the repositories and issue the following command:

weather-the-v LIML

where LIML refers to the ICAO my area. To find other codes look here .

For other commands, please contact San man.

Within this picture, there is a hidden message very compromising. The technique of hiding secret information within a file, whether it is a text file, a music file or a file of an image is known as steganography . This technique consists in altering a few bits, without clearly evident alter the content.

Then install steghide

apt-get install steghide

First we get information on how much data you can insert the image

steghide info nonapritequellaporta.jpg

in the case of the image we nonapritequellaporta.jpg

"Nonapritequellaporta.jpg": format: jpeg capacity: 4.8 KB

Now we create a text file (topsecret.txt) containing the secret message to be included in the image, then the insert with the following command

steghide embed-cf nonapritequellaporta.jpg topsecret.txt-f-v-p "password"

the-p option specifies the password to use for cifare and decipher the secret information

To retrieve the hidden data is used increasingly steghide

steghide extract-v-sf nonapritequellaporta.jpg

password to retrieve the top secret file is :)

password

For more options, refer to the manual

There are two other programs to match with steghide, and are stegdetect and outguess . The first is to detect if a file is steganographic, while the second makes it much more difficult to detect, and in addition allows you to enter two messages. Both can be installed with apt.

BluePad is a program used for remote control. E 'consists of 2 programs to be installed on both the PC and on the phone. It 'a project born recently and therefore, tested the phones are very few, however it is an interesting project, since under linux I am not aware there are similar programs. At the time it was tested on the following phones:

Motorola V360 Motorola Razr V3x Motorola Razr V3xx Nokia 6230 Nokia 6230i Nokia 6234 Nokia 6280 Nokia 6300 Samsung E390 Sony Ericsson k750 Sony Ericsson K510

For Debian ubuntu etc. There is a deb package downloaded here

while the program is downloaded to your phone from here

I have not had the time to try it, cause premature demise of my nokia, scontratosi with the edge of a table.

P ytube is a Gui, which allows you to download videos from youtube and convert them simultaneously. So it is an alternative to this type of command

ffmpeg -i filmato.flv -ab 56 -ar 22050 -b 500 -s 320×240 filmato.mpg

It supports various formats, mpg, ogg, mp3, wav, theora. The required dependencies are: GTK + 2.0, PyGTK 2, Notify Python, Youtube-DL, Mencoder, Mplayer, ffmpeg2theora, oggenc, Zenity. For ubuntu, all architectures, you can sacricare the deb package from here , for the mouse here
