Replacement of my 'can't live without' apps


Now i am really used to these so any help wld be greatly appreciated.[list=1][*]Mouse gestures - something like Strokeit for windowswhich is like very customizable, fast light & free. Way better than khotkeys
[*]Rightbutton + wheel = alt-tab - or any other way to control alt+tab with the mouse
[*]clipboard capturing. The one i like- holding middlebutton pops a menu containg captured clips. Also a keyboard shortcut is assigned to access the menu. In widows Powerpro allows this behaviour
[*]Proxomitron. For adblocking web-control. This is great!!- I heard it can run in linux through wine. Can anyone confirm?
[*]docking app- a really customizable one. In windows again powerpro , great application ,very very customizable and more importantly its fast, light and free.[/list=1]

1. Xnee

2. KDE or Gnome or other WMs

3. Assign import command from ImageMagik package to
any keyboard shortctut you want, see your WM for that

4. Mozilla could block uneeded pop up windows
(maybe I didn't understand for that one)

5. Docker

There's no pt in running a heavyweight prog like wine, just for proxomitron. Only affects wine env anyway.
Mozilla & Firefox have ad-blocking anyway.
