Software George has installed for you

Miscellaneous collection of programs and tools that I have installed and occasionally update. I do this less than I used to because I spend most of my time on my OSX box these days.

In alphabetical order:

  • audacity: Free audio editor and recorder
  • autoconf: GNU Project configurator
  • automake: GNU Project makefile maker
  • cadaver: Command-line WebDAV client
  • cinelerra: Movie studio in a Linux box
  • cvs: Concurrent Versions System
  • dviselect: Extract pages from DVI files
  • Firefox: Mozilla Project web browser
  • gcc: GNU Project compiler collection
  • gtar: GNU Project archiving utility
  • Mozilla: Mozilla Project integrated suite
  • SoX: Universal sound sample translator
  • Sunbird: Mozilla Project calendar app
  • Thunderbird: Mozilla Project mail client

To use all these programs in place of the default installed versions, add /u/ferguson/bin-linux to the start of your PATH (see SettingUnixSearchPath for details).

To use only some of the programs, create $HOME/bin and add it to your PATH. Then create a symlink from there to the program(s) you want in /u/ferguson/bin-linux.

To get the manpages (if there are any), add /u/ferguson/man to your MANPATH. I also try to link relevant Info files from /u/ferguson/info if you care.

If you just have to see under the hood, everything is installed in /u/ferguson/sw, with links to relevant parts in the bin-linux and man directories.
