GIMP is an advanced picture editor. You can use it to edit, enhance, and retouch photos and scans, create drawings, and make your own images. It has a large collection of professional-level editing tools and filters, similar to the ones you might find in Photoshop. Numerous fine-control settings and features like layers, paths, masks, and scripting give you total control over your images.

Many image file formats are supported, including JPEG, Photoshop (.psd), and Paint Shop Pro (.psp) files. It can also be used to scan and print photos.

To open files remotely (like over HTTP), install the gvfs-backends package.

To use a MIDI device (like a musical keyboard) as an input controller in GIMP, install libasound2 and read the how-to at /usr/share/doc/gimp/README.MIDI

Inkscape is an illustration editor which has everything needed to create professional-quality computer art. You can use it to make diagrams and illustrations, technical drawings, web graphics, clip art, icons and logos. A collection of hands-on tutorials show you how to combine lines, shapes and text of different types and styles to build up a picture.

A selection of powerful vector graphics editing tools comes as standard. There is excellent support for paths, gradients, layers, alpha transparency and text flow control. An extensive library of filters allow you to apply realistic effects and extensions allow you to work with bitmaps, barcodes and printing marks, amongst other things.

Most of the common vector formats are supported, including PDF, Adobe Illustrator and AutoCAD files, and it has unrivalled support for the SVG web graphics standard.

Between the suggested packages:

  • dia: to export Dia shapes;
  • libsvg-perl: to import .txt files (txt2svg extension);
  • libxml-xql-perl: to use the shadow effect;
  • python-uniconvertor: enables several import/export extensions;
  • pstoedit: to work with eps files;
  • ruby: there are several extensions written in ruby;

An X display manager that:

  • Has a lightweight codebase
  • Is standards compliant (PAM, ConsoleKit, etc)
  • Has a well defined interface between the server and user interface
  • Fully themeable
  • Cross-desktop (greeters can be written in any toolkit)

Additional software can be useful along with LightDM:

  • xserver-xephyr can be used to add a nested X display by calling 'dm-tool add-nested-seat`
  • upower can be used to suspend the computer from the display manager
  • accountsservice is used to populate a user list with addition information.
The package is enhanced by the following packages: debian-edu-artwork

The MATE Desktop Environment is the continuation of GNOME 2. It provides an intuitive and attractive desktop environment using traditional metaphors for Linux and other Unix-like operating systems.

MATE is under active development to add support for new technologies while preserving a traditional desktop experience.

This package installs the standard set of applications that are part of the official MATE release.

It also suggests a few non-MATE standard desktop applications like an internet browser, a mail reader and a network management applet.

This package contains the daemon which is responsible for setting the various parameters of a MATE session and the applications that run under it. It handles the following kinds of settings:

  • Keyboard: layout, accessibility options, shortcuts, media keys
  • Clipboard management
  • Theming: background, icons, GTK+ applications
  • Cleanup of unused files
  • Mouse: cursors, speed, accessibility options
  • Startup of other daemons: screensaver, sound daemon
  • Typing break

It also sets various application settings through X resources and freedesktop.org XSETTINGS.

This package uses PulseAudio instead of GStreamer for media keys.

This is Jim Knoble's free implementation of the ssh-askpass program.

Jim calls this x11-ssh-askpass, but I've decided to call it ssh-askpass to make it easier to find, because this is almost certainly the version you want. Other ssh-askpass programs are available, some of which may integrate better into various desktop environments.

VLC is the VideoLAN project's media player. It plays MPEG, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, MOV, WMV, QuickTime, WebM, FLAC, MP3, Ogg/Vorbis files, DVDs, VCDs, podcasts, and multimedia streams from various network sources.

VLC can also be used as a streaming server that duplicates the stream it reads and multicasts them through the network to other clients, or serves them through HTTP.

VLC has support for on-the-fly transcoding of audio and video formats, either for broadcasting purposes or for movie format transformations. Support for most output methods is provided by this package, but features can be added by installing additional plugins:

  • vlc-plugin-access-extra
  • vlc-plugin-fluidsynth
  • vlc-plugin-jack

Dasher is an information-efficient text-entry interface, driven by natural continuous pointing gestures. Dasher is a competitive text-entry system wherever a full-size keyboard cannot be used - for example,

  • on a palmtop computer
  • on a wearable computer
  • when operating a computer one-handed, by joystick, touchscreen, trackball, or mouse
  • when operating a computer with zero hands (i.e., by head-mouse or by eyetracker).

The eyetracking version of Dasher allows an experienced user to write text as fast as normal handwriting - 25 words per minute; using a mouse, experienced users can write at 39 words per minute.

Dasher uses a more advanced prediction algorithm than the T9(tm) system often used in mobile phones, making it sensitive to surrounding context.

This is an X11 based GUI for the libxine video player library. It provides xine, a skin based media player that can play all the audio/video formats that libxine supports. Currently, this includes MPEG1/2, some AVI and Quicktime files, some network streaming methods and disc based media (VCD, SVCD, DVD). A more complete list can be found on http://xinehq.de/index.php/features/.

Most DVDs on the market today are play-protected by the Content Scrambling System (CSS). Xine does not provide any code to descramble those DVDs, because of legal uncertainties. Have a look at /usr/share/doc/xine-ui/README.Debian for more information!
