Here's a link to "relational", which is a GUI-based relational algebra application. According to the site, it is an "educational tool" so I'm not sure if it's exactly what you're looking for or not. You should be able to install it by running the following command from a terminal session: sudo apt-get install relational

Maybe Sage has some capabilities that would be useful to you? It's a multi-purpose CAS. If not, here is a thick report on Relational Algebra that I couldn't make heads or tails of---not even to figure out where the software that the author is talking about is available.

mp4's can be easily edited using both kdenlive and openshot. If you use kdenlive you may be in the need to have KDE's theme properly configured in order to avoid problems with the menus and other program's items while at work.

Got an answer in the Kubuntu Forums by oshunluvr. Here it is: I believe they're all in /home/USERNAME/.kde/share/config and /home/USERNAME/.kde/share/apps. Most of the configs are named PROGRAMrc, like katerc for kate and so on. The ../apps directory contains add-ons like skins and plugins.

If chat is starting at login, you can open the settings window from the contacts list, go to the "General" section, and uncheck "Restore last presence on login". That doesn't disable the instant messaging icon in the panel (it just shows "offline" when it's not running). To get rid of the icon, right-click an empty space in the system tray (e.g. between ...

It can be a bit of a tradeoff between where you want to save time. Kdenlive is a perfectly respectable editor, if you were looking to try out alternatives then you could also try cinelerra or PiTiVi.

There is an open bug(/wish) report: Bug 262551 - By changing the keyboard shortcut to view hidden files in dolphin, in the window "open file" remains unchanged (Alt+.) /5/. So it seems that the "Alt+." shortcut is not configurable with the kdialog's open/save. Links: ...
