Handbrake to every single distro there is! So far only Gentoo distros, PCLinuxOS and Fusion Linux allow for a simple install option. Ubuntu allows for it too but you must add the specific source ppa repo and its kinda a hassle. But best DVD encoder I've ever found!

Question Simple "Relationalship" database.......

Hi!

I can only hope that I've come to the right place. I don't know squat about programming in either Windows or Linux. But, I really
need a database that you can set up the 'fields", their length, and other important data and as I input the data, have it check
itself for "dupes". Once discovered, it would wait and let me
make the determination to "post" it, or delete the data. When
I'm finished with the inputting of data, it would prepare to print
out everything in Landscape mode and print the order I want it in.

Many years ago, there was a DOS written database in shareware that
did most of all of this, except the printing sideways to get as much data on the page as possible. At present, I don't have a
working printer that would print Landscape on an 11 X 14" sheets.

Soon, I hope to be running Xbuntu 10.04 or 10.10 to make it easy
on my learning Linux. Some of the programs in Xbuntu are written so that Ham (Morse code) Operators can use it to control
their radio's/computer and log contacts as they are worked.

Thanks so much for LQ^QKing.

Respectfully submitted,
Regards,
Buck/KA5LQJ

Open Office / Libre Office has a portion called Base. It's supposed to be a MS Access clone, though not as user friendly "yet". But for the task you described it should work quite well indeed. It can connect to most any database system, or even just direct into its own file system. You can design your own tables and define rules about how they relate to each other (i.e. relational references), including which fields in the table are keys, indexed and/or forced as unique. Then you can also design your own data entry forms, query tables to combine 2 or more together / extract / summarize data. And then finally you design your own reports to print / display the data from either a table, or a query.

If that is overkill to what you want, then most spreadsheet programs also have a format as table idea. In such cases it can be setup to highlight duplicate values.

I think TagScanner. Is an excellent tool for editing tags in mp3 files which runs only on windows.

There is no compare with other equivalents in area (easyTag or Mp3 Diags). Those programs luck too much in stability and they are much too complicated. TagScanner on the other hand, I bet is the most tiny, more full equipted, highly professional, and most reliable tag editing application (player also) I have ever met.

So, TagScanner - I BET - is THE application, BY FAR, that I'd like to see ported in linux.

Thanks

Talking Visio

MS Visio, never found anything to compare to it for network diagrams.

Actually, there are WAY better programs in Linux for replacements instead of Visio. In particular, the program called "Dia" works far better than Visio. Also I suggest using it in conjunction with "Inkscape" and the you have Linux's Visio

Played with Dia before (a while ago now), it is the best I can find but need some way to import or convert visio stencils to work with it to enable highly detailed network diagram (which is the main thing I do with Visio). Seen some tools to do this but nothing to make we stop using Visio just yet. One day all my apps will run on Linux and I can get 100% away from Windows but till that day my job dictates I much run Windows!

Hi again. Use "Inkscape", a vector graphics program with "Dia". That's what I did. But Inkscape can both read a Dia program file and create and save to a Visio file (.vsd) Is this what you meant?

Search revealed many others with some of the same requests...

Quicken & Turbo Tax are my first choices.
MT4 trading platform for Forex.
Notespad, Clipmate, & Snagit utilities.

Because all these are indespensible, I've installed & run VirtualBox with WinXP which is up & running in one of my 4 Ubuntu workspaces. The remaining 3 are more than I need.

The Linux Standard Base (LSB) specifies the binary interface between an application and a runtime environment. This paper discusses the LSB Development Kit (LDK) consisting of a build environment and associated tools to assist software developers in building/porting their applications to the LSB interface. The developers will be able to use the build environment on their development machines, catching the LSB porting issues early in the development cycle and reducing overall LSB conformance testing time and cost. The associated tools include the application and package checkers to test for LSB conformance of application binaries and RPM packages.

Let me just add my voice to the chorus of 'Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Corel Draw' and whatever other publishing software there is both in bitmap, vector graphics and DTP.

Too many pages to read it all. I'll have to say CorelDRAW.
