There is a very well know tricky cheat to archive a NTFS defragmentation (including free space)... it can be done with a Live Linux like SystemRescueCD... But, you must have a second HDD or at least a 51% free space (that if not using compression). The trick (very tricky) is to use tools to "clone" the partition, but not typical ones... there is a tool ...

Joe Back in the 1990s many of my colleagues preferred Joe to either vi, pico or emacs. It is still considered by some as the most user friendly terminal based text editor. JOE is a full featured terminal-based screen editor which is distributed under the GNU General Public License (GPL). JOE has been around since 1988 and comes standard with many ...

Syncthing Blurb: Syncthing replaces proprietary sync and cloud services with something open, trustworthy and decentralized. Your data is your data alone and you deserve to choose where it is stored, if it is shared with some third party and how it's transmitted over the Internet.

People say convert m3u to mp3 usually means convert m3u files to mp3 files though m3u is not a format but a playlist file. Quite a few player could play it at present. As far as I am concerned, winamp support it. Regarding converting m3u to mp3, if you have the m3u files, you can try a free online audio converter to get it done. I used it each time I have ...

Short answer It seems there's no good enough up to date open source Flash player project. And apparently current Lightspark won't work with Chromium version 34 and higher.

In addition to other answers: since you want to produce a GIF file, I assume you want to display the image on a web page. If so, I would not bother converting your PNGs at all. Just google for "javascript slideshow" and use one of the millions of free scripts. Or write your own, this is really trivial. The benefits of doing it this way are: only one image ...

Use -limit memory 1GiB to limit the amount of memory convert uses. 1000s of images would create a huge GIF that most computers will struggle to display. I keep my animated GIFs below 200 images when possible. The fewer the better. If you number your images, this command will delete the odd numbered images rm *[13579].png. So here is my typical workflow ...

There is a Firefox app for Soundcloud, which partly integrate into your environment. It is fairly limited (no way to play your stream for the moment, no sound menu integration - it must be that it was developed for phones and features are missing on the desktop) but at least it is lightweight and you can lock it to the launcher. It is available on the ...

The obvious choice is OpenSCAD, that focuses precisely on 3D modelling for industrial purposes: OpenSCAD is a software for creating solid 3D CAD models. It is free software and available for Linux/UNIX, Windows and Mac OS X.

It sounds like you're trying to make a video. If that's the case, then I'd use a proper video format. In this case, I'd use ffmpeg to convert the individual PNG files to a H.264 video. Since ffmpeg is made to work with videos that can be hours long, it should have no problem with your thousands of images. Using H.264 instead of animated gif will result in ...

I wouldn't use a creator program myself, I'd make a manual multi-boot usb by installing grub & editing a grub.cfg file to point to the .iso file that's just copied onto the usb. Or as a last resort, plain dd to get the iso onto a usb drive (though I don't especially like it's overwriting the usb's default MBR & partitioning). Here's pasted quick ...

I could use another open format if .gif is not supported Perhaps APNG is of use to you. It's supported by some browsers, including Firefox but at the moment excluding Chrome and IE. Since it's just a PNG extension, it's very simple to convert PNGs to APNG. The apngasm tool can do that. But the format is so simple that I recently wrote an APNG assembler ...

Personally, I would just launch it on limited numbers of files instead of all at once. For example, something like this: #!/usr/bin/env bash ## Collect all png files in the files array files=( *png ) ## How many should be done at once batch=50 ## Read the array in batches of $batch for (( i=0; $i<${#files[@]}; i+=$batch )) do ## Convert this batch ...

If you have thousands of png-s, the anigif format is weird. I would do it in this way, using avconv: avconv -i "%d.png" -r 25 -c:v libx264 -crf 20 -pix_fmt yuv420p animated.mov

There isn't a "best" for anything. Just pick what suits you best. If you don't like gimp and/or don't find you have the time to learn it, you should search around for alternatives, though, I can't assure you you'll be able to use any of them without some relearning. I always find Arch's list of applications worth a look: ...

Gimp which is available in most Linux distributions can do that easily. sudo aptitude install gimp Then open a PDF in it, select an area, Tools > Transform tools > Scale. When you're done, export as a PDF. UPDATE: If you care about importing PDFs ehile preserving their vector structure, you can use Inkscape.

I just created a new minimalistic pomodoro counter. See https://bitbucket.org/dvtomas/osd-pomodoro A simple, ultra-lightweight, transparent, unobtrusive pomodoro countdown for Linux. Always on top, yet so small that it doesn't really bother you. And if it does for a moment, just send it a UNIX signal to toggle visibility.

VLC can do this through the Adjustments and Effects > Video Effects > Crop settings. mplayer can also do this. Use something like: mplayer -vf cropdetect=round:16 -ss 10:00 dvd:// This will output the detected crop settings in the terminal, something like 720:416:0:80 which can then be used in the crop filter: mplayer -vf crop=720:416:0:80 dvd://

With pdfimages the extracted image may be in two or more parts. A simple way to put them together again with no worries about extracted formats is to import the parts into LibreOffice Draw, crop with the image crop dialogue, position the parts, adjust the page size and export in whatever format you prefer.
