There is no easy way to backup an DVD9 to a DVD5 like in the program DVD Shrink for windows..
and ther's no good program for mpeg encoding like TMPGenc..
And a program like Deamon Tools would be greate..

a Media Player!

oh yeh... big problem for me... Media Player.

I'd need almost every media type supported. A good place to start would be RealOne. But, Remove the Media Catolog thing. it dosn;t catogorise my media correctly.


Somthing I highly doubt:
Windows Media Player For Linux.
(is that an Oxymoron?)



Thanks!

What? Why don't you just mount the image?
Code:
mount -t iso9660 -o loop image.iso /dev/cdrom
or whatever.

Solidworks is the most sophisticated so I doubt we'll soon see something like it from the open source community.

I know there's some alternatives to freehand, but their performance is light years away from freehand's.

Anyway if someone is interested in starting a project or knows something related to this already in development, I would gladly like to be of help if there is need for someone in the graphics division.

Thanks
This is my problem as well a good vector graphics program. Currently I use CorelDraw 7, and I have not found a Linux alternative yet, offering the same capabilities.

However, there is hope. Take a look at SodiPodi. So to see, it still is in a very early stage of development, considering the featerus offered, BUT (and this is the good news), what it does, it does good. It feels good, intuitive. It feels stable. And (difficult to describe) if you look at the tools currently implemented, and the options you have with each tool, it is to be expected that once more tools and features are added, all with the same multitude of options and settings, I expect a full replacement for Corel. Not a clone, you have to learn to use it as a tool, but a great application nevertheless.

I the web site is www.sodipodi.com

lotheac that works greate.. the only problem is that it only works with .iso and raw files..
I need a program that takes it all like Deamon Tools (bin & cue, ccd, img...)

Re: What programs would you like to see ported to Linux?

Quicken
Visio
Adobe Acrobat *full version* (an improvement on the linux Reader-only version whould be nice too)

...and I know I'll probably never see any of them

these are the only apps preventing me from totally abandoning windows

PS also BackupMyPC (for the 4gb Seagate SCI2 tape drives I still use - I use taper in linux but BackupMyPC has a more informative and flexible GUI)

This might br slightly off base, but OpenOffice is very nice, but lacks a database application. Does anyone know of a solid, easy to install, simple to learn and operate database application for Linux similar to Access (or better?)
rekall This is actually a front-end for a RDMS (Relational Database Management System) such as mySQL (or others) which you would also have to install on linux.

I believe it is bundled with the (commercial) StarOffice from Sun.

rekall 2.2.0 beta-1 is bundled with SUSE 9.1 pro

Visual Basic

I've been using Visual Basic in my line of work and I prefer to move in using Linux. How'd i wish to find a visual basic ported to Linux since im getting "comfortable" working inside Linux OS.

Fix the problems first XD

Personally speaking i would like to see if some one can do something about the dependency hell ppl are facing, if not at least those hard working devs should put a link or a place for users to download the dependencies. IMO at least ><

Thx

Hi there guy's, i'm kinda new and Dutch so if i make a spelling mistake please help me on the way!

As for speaking right now i've been using Debian for quite a while and I must say it's the best thing i've ever seen !
And there's a option with apt-get to see if there are any dependencies or packages needed to get the main program working.
If it's 100% nescecary then apt-get will install another package to, for example:
apt-get install kde
then it will track down all dependencies or packages really needed and installs them for you !
I swear Debian rocks !

If you want to run Visual Basic.NET you should look at MONO
It's pretty powerful and would run most apps (but I find still a pain to install).
There is also DotGnu which apparently does the job pretty fine (but I never tried).

If you want to run Visual Studio 6.0, then that will be tricky - I never installed it on Wine.
And am not sure if there are any issues with VBRUN60.DLL or not.

Now if you want to just expand on your Basic but under Linux ...
There is a wealth of different types of Basic for Linux, from very simple educational (and so perhaps useless) - to fully featured, event driven and GUI oriented.
Gambas is one of them.
There are probably other links, but am in a rush now - and they are not difficult to find.
You can get Basic for OpenOffice too, so you can do many macros and automation apps just like MS Office.

Try Inkscape
Again nowhere near Corel Draw, but apparently more powerful that Sodipodi.
*Apparently* since I haven't played with it enough
