Lifehacker Pack: a pack of essential apps for Linux

Life Hacker Pack

Life Hacker Pack is a bundle that includes several essential apps for Linux all in one. We have different distributions, with different packages pre-installed by default, although it is true that in most of them, at least in the best known ones, they already come with most of the programs that we use on a daily basis and we have little to add if we are a user medium, except for certain more specific tools or programs.

What Lifehacker Pack does is integrate some of the best essential applications for Linux in a single package, to install them at once on our system. This, as I said, is not very practical whenever you think of known distributions, but there are others that do not include such pre-installed apps or if they are distributions built from scratch, etc. So the package begins to gain importance, and even more so if we have many teams, saving us to a great extent doing the installations one by one.

What does the LifeHacker Pack include, well, now I will try to put a list of the applications or software included in the. But first I would like to leave the link where we can get it from the official website of the project. If you come from the Windows world, you may also know this package, as there is also a version for Microsoft operating systems. And going back to what this package includes, you can say that we can find:

  • Synapse
  • Kate
  • geany
  • Autokey
  • LibreOffice
  • Chrome
  • Pidgin
  • Skype
  • Google Hangouts
  • VLC
  • digiKam
  • Shotwell
  • GIMP
  • Clementine
  • Spotify
  • dropbox
  • Deluge
  • CrashPlan
  • PeaZip
  • Wine
  • VirtualBox
  • Terminator

As you can see there are from apps for communication, office automation, compress / decompress, for the cloud, multimedia players, virtualization, browsers, graphic editors, music, Wine to also install native software for Microsoft Windows, etc. Therefore it is quite complete and meets many fronts and types of uses that we give to our system.

    Skype? what for? it will stop being supported in GNU / Linux in a few days and it has never had connection to three or more ... and its future even in Windows is very dark.
    With Hangouts! it has to spare and without those limitations.
