Google itselft doesn't provide a linux-client for Google Drive, but there are several third-party clients: Grive 2 Grive 2 is the fork of the original command line client Grive. There are a few things that Grive does not do at the moment: continously wait for changes in file system or in Google Drive to occur and upload. A sync is only performed when you ...

I think you need a pomodoro App Well there are some that are specifically made for elementary. Tomato Tomato App is a time management application based on the Pomodoro technique, specially developed for the elementary OS 0.3 Freya and elementary OS 0.2 Luna systems. You can use the stable PPA now: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:tomato-team/tomato-stable sudo ...

Go For it Yep I did go fast and recommended a basic app (tomato) but I have dug one more out with more features, but it is doesn't look as good compared to tomato. It does have a more configurable timer. It is a simple and stylish productivity app, featuring a to-do list, merged with a timer that keeps your focus on the current task. To install it you can ...

The default one is gnome-screenshot and as far as I can tell it respects the HIG guidelines (see window decorations). Looking through 3rd-party solutions specifically developed for elementary OS, there's a similar tool which makes use of a dark theme. There is also a request to pull it in as the new default screenshot tool in the next release of ...

A good suggestion is probably the IRC client Relay currently in development by agronick and specifically aimed at elementary OS. You can install it with: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:agronick/relay sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install relay

Photos (and its companion Photo Viewer) is installed by default and can crop images.

Use Gnome Encfs Manager. It's not an official elementary app, and it doesn't work from within Files, but it's worked really well for me. You can have the program launch at startup, or you can just summon it from slingshot whenever you need it. The interface displays a list of your encrypted stashes, so you don't have to hunt them down. I like that I can ...

Maybe try something like Data Crow? I was never much satisfied with the "iTunes" approach to this, wherein you get an app to "Import" some "Library" of items that you can then tag and search and comment on. So I always ended up hacking together my own solution. Except on Haiku or OSX > 10.8, which get tagging right (in my opinion). Poor man's solution ...

Install seahorse and seahorse-contracts. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/daily sudo apt-get install seahorse seahorse-contracts I recommend you remove the daily repo after installation to avoid getting updates that may break your system. sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:elementary-os/daily

At this time you can be happy when having a working video editor on elementary OS. Kdenlive from the 14.04 Repo is very outdated and has some problems. The newer builds from the ppa rely on newer dependencies and don't work on 14.04. It is also not very intuitive. https://kdenlive.org/download-ubuntu https://launchpad.net/~sunab/+archive/ubuntu/kdenlive-...

I quite like qBittorrent (sudo apt install qbittorent if the command-line is your thing) I don't know if it is the best - I haven't done that much testing - but it satisfies your requirement for searching (it has a whole bunch of built-in searches, and you can add more), and I think the interface is quite nice If you're new to Linux, you might find http://...

GIMP GIMP is a free graphic manipulation tool. Installation: From software center. You can also install it through the terminal, if you are comfortable doing that, by running this command: sudo apt-get install gimp For the latest version, with newer features, use a PPA as GIMP suggests: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp sudo apt-get ...

Loki has compatibility with touchscreen, at least in my case (Asus X550C). Just like you, I have Windows 10 installed along with Elementary. When I was in Freya, touchscreen was not supported and didn't work properly, but recently since I upgraded to Loki it works like a charm, just like in Windows. So yes, install Loki and you will be able to use the ...

I'm going to preface this with a nod to the fact that I work on elementary.io, and thanks to that have access to lots of lovely metrics mere mortals are not normally privy to. Transmission (38%) Transmission is by far the most popular torrent client, more than a third of torrent users use it and it comes with some reasonably nice GTK support. This provides ...

Well... You cannot really run professional CAD and Adobe applications on Linux. You should either use a Mac or if you want to use Linux you should be prepared for some work. There are various options: 1. There is Wine & PlayOnLinux that add a Windows compatibility layer to Linux but first you need to check how these applications run on Linux at the ...

A dedicated chat app was recently discussed as a prominent wishlist request, but there isn't any such app in full development beyond prototypes as of now. The chat project has an open bounty of $550 even though it was closed in May, which brings us to the feature request's closure: I'm going to close this issue because the circumstances of the world have ...

Development for elementary 0.5 will be happening in the future series on Launchpad, however currently there are no changes, only bug reports (not surprising given that elementary 0.4 was only released this month). If you are referring to being able to install Hexchat on Loki, it can be found in AppCenter (or can be installed with sudo apt install hexchat). ...

The problem with elementary is that all adobe and other design programs are not on Linux. So as far as I know, your best choice would be a Mac, as it is beautiful and has compatibility with all those programs.

I also couldn't make Albert work and also learned that it doesn't have nearly as much features as on macOS. I finally figured out how to make Albert work. Remove Albert - only if you already tried installing Albert (First startup of Albert crashed on my system and broke the install) killall albert sudo apt-get remove albert sudo rm -rf /usr/bin/albert ...

I have checked the source you're referring to. There's no package for ubuntu 18.04 and up. It havn't been updated in 3 years. So you have to find other means to try Albert.

It's not as elegant as other solutions but teamviewer has everything you need.

My computer is a Dell Inspiron 5578 2in1, with Windows 10 and Loki, and it works ok as a tablet. I don't have auto rotation, but solved it with ScreenRotator. OnBoard works lovely, as an on-screen keyboard, too.


1

Not necessarily. I have tried Loki with two different 2in1 laptops. On one, a Dell 3000 series, the touchscreen works, but rotation is buggy. It always rotates into the wrong orientation, so it is totally unusable. I also have an Asus Vivobook, and on that one, the rotation doesn't work at all, but at least it will orient to the normal, laptop direction. ...

There are two good tools to edit meta-data of image-files: exiftool and exiv2 exiftool: You will find exif here: official site It also has a graphical frontend: frontend for exif exiv2: This is a better tool than exiftool. You can find it here: official site. Here is a man page on how to use this: exiv2 man page

Yes, Pixel Saver stop working in new Gnome But Unite works well on Ubuntu 19.04. One more alternative is gtk-title-bar

This is not possible for two reasons: Window decorations are now drawn by the application itself. There no longer is a separate title bar. The panel does not support such an API.

You can use PImagizer to resize one by one, or use Converseen to resize many images. You can install it by the command: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/apps sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install converseen ]3
