Software I frequently use in web design

I use various Linux distributions while working on personal web design projects. Below is a list of my favorite software packages.

Desktop and Terminal

  • LAMP
  • WordPress
  • ssh
  • sshfs – (creates a mounted file of an ssh connection)
  • tar & gzip2 – (Manual backups via the terminal of my databasae and files.)

Graphic Design

  • GIMP
  • Inkscape

Audio and Video production

  • kdenlive – video production for cuts and transtitions etc.
  • audacity – audio editing, usually to clean up noise

Text Editors

This varies a little from distribution to distribution, I frequently favor what’s preinstalled with that system.

  • gedit – (never fails me when I need a good text editor, Gedit isn’t pretty but it’s reliable)
  • xed
  • Scratch – Elementary OS
  • Mousepad – XFCE Desktop’s
  • nano – Terminal

Note-taking

Besides a pocket notebook to contain frequently used commands I use the either of the following

  • Tomboy Notes
  • Notes for XFCE
