More terminal programs you should be using … like a pro

Filed under
Software

I’ll have to glaze over the last few console programs I wanted to mention, and leave it to you to investigate them fully.

I should mention that none of these are linked to Ubuntu in particular; I’ve given links to the Ubuntu package search pages but these are probably available — if not already installed — in every distro.

alsamixer

You already have alsamixer installed on your computer; you probably just don’t know it’s there. alsamixer does everything most graphical volume controls do, and does it just as well.

htop

I mention htop a lot, and that’s because I use it a lot. It’s much more attractive than the conventional top program, and much more functional.

  • Kontact and GnuPG under Windows
    Kontact has, in contrast to Thunderbird, integrated crypto support (OpenPGP and S/MIME) out-of-the-box. That means on Linux you can simply start Kontact and read crypted mails (if you have already created keys). After you select your crypto keys, you can immediately start writing encrypted mails. With that great user experince I never needed to dig further in the crypto stack.
