My tools of trade in a Linux system

With no special order:

Desktop environments and/or window managers

  • plasma (to me, the best desktop environment for any free software operating system)
  • i3wm (paired with picom [https://github.com/ibhagwan/picom] for transparency, blur and rounded corners)

Terminal emulators

  • konsole (I’ve grown very fond if this terminal emulator since I switched to the plasma desktop, and it has blur for the blings ;))
  • urxvt-unicode (with tabbedex, so I can have tabs with it)

Text editors

  • micro (my favorite and because it supports gui keybinds, although it’s a cli text editor)
  • nano (simple and super useful, available by default in a lot of linux distributions)
  • vim (I have a custom mode for writing markdown text)
  • gedit (for when I need a text editor with a gui)

Note taking

  • qownnotes

Browsers

  • firefox (my favorite for around a decade and an half. I actually used the 0.x versions)
  • chromium
  • brave
  • falkon

Multimedia

  • gimp (and a fork named glimpse)
  • darktable
  • lightzone (like darktable)
  • jpegoptim
  • optipng
  • oxipng
  • youtube-dl

System tools

  • htop
  • gotop
  • cat
  • scat (for when I need to ‘cat’ a file with syntax highlight)
  • less
  • watch (I like to keep a pane opened on tmux with the hardware temperature [watch -n1 ‘sensors -A | egrep “edge|temp”‘])
  • openssh
  • dotdrop (for the dotfiles backup)
  • tmux (I love this terminal multiplexer)
  • tmuxinator (useful if you want to open tmux with any number of panes by default)
  • broot (a cli file manager with vim-like keybinds and commands)
  • fzf integrated with bash (because fuzzy search rocks)
  • pacman (because I use EndeavourOS, basically Arch with a graphical installer)

What about you? What are your tools of trade in a Linux system?
