ezTV is included in TED and you can update at whatever interval you want to or manually.

Anyway, without listing 800 command line programs that I couldn't live without, here are a few Linux applications with GUI that are pretty cool. Some may have windows or mac counterparts.

IMAL - Scientific Image Measurement and Analysis Lab
nip2, Qgar, and Fiji - image processing
GRASS GIS - GIS app, duh.

mplayer for playing video (command line, kmplayer is the same, just with a GUI for KDE), ffmpeg for encoding, avidemux for editing.
I killed my arch install trying to get kde 4.3 running. I think it's time to install 2009.08 and try again.

sorry, updated more frequently meaning there are shows out there that the ted devs have not added to the list yet. you would have to add the show filters manually (which kinda defeats the purpose). Dollhouse comes to mind. i cant remember. i uninstalled it.

i use Awesome Window Manager but i do have kde installed. as long as you use kdemod you should be cool. you can also get a much lighter system with kdemod than you can with the packages in extra.

KDEmod - ArchWiki

Yeah, I did kdemod with 3.5 but I found the modular aspect of it got annoying after a while, especially trying to remove applications that I didn't need.

meh.. if all i wanted was kalarm then i would have to install the entire kdepim metapackage from extra. with kdemod i can just do the applications i want. i might have a different opinion if i ran kde though. i really only use 3 or 4 qt applications and even then its a rare occasion.

True, I feel I use QT apps very often though. Kind of in a weird spot right now, love 3.5 but it isn't aging gracefully in terms of what meets the eye and 4.2/4.3 just isn't a proper environment yet.

Oh I see, i'm fairly certain Dollhouse is in there, the update shows button is in the menu. My show hasn't been there straight away maybe once or twice but you can just type the show name and series number and it'll generate the feeds for you.

Spotify

I've been using this for a month or so now and I'm really impressed. It's a shockingly simple peer-to-peer music app that streams music to you - it's a combination of iTunes, Pandora, Last.fm and, well, pretty much everything. Just search for a song, click on it and listen - no buffering, no download, just music.



It's a joy to use and the radio mode - where you select genres and decade ranges and it chooses music for you - is a terrific way to find music you've never heard but might like.

You can build, share and collaborate on playlists*, listen to your music from any computer and I think you can even scrobble to last.fm

There's 3.8 millions songs at the moment and it's free with the occasional ad or you can pay to remove them completely.

I LOVE IT!

*There's a Phonogram playlist here.

not available in the US. I do believe this is a first, no?
