It's been about a month since I started using Ubuntu 16.04. About 15 days ago, I had exact doubt and I read this answer. I installed Google Translate plugin Link to the site that explains it nicely. But it works online only, and most of the times gives pretty useless results. I also installed Golden Dictionary but somehow I still didn't get what I want. ...

Although you do not mention which Ubuntu flavour you are using, there is a nice app for Xubuntu. More specifically, it is part of Xfce, so you might still be able to use it in Ubuntu if you use Xfce. The app is called Places. To enable, right-click on the panel, and from the menu select Panel -> Add New Items..., and there choose Places. This shows a list ...

Some key features: Import features from many other notes taking software.

There's also Sweethome 3D. It's more of an interior decorators type of package, with all sorts of bells and whistles, but seems fairly intuitive in terms of user interface. You can probably leave diagrams at a more basic level. It's available in the universe section of the Ubuntu repositories, so is likely to be available through software centre, or can be ...

I have made basic architectural drawings (for work) using CAD software such as Free CAD You can certainly draw floor plans and so on in this type of software, but it takes a bit of practice to use fluently - I don't know if it's the simplest. But it is great for scaling and drawing with measurements. You can get Free CAD from Ubuntu repositories: sudo apt-...

Sublime Text has this feature, and it is enabled by default. To be honest, I haven't tried the Linux version of Sublime Text, only the Windows one, but I assume it will work the same. (I just saw this question in the sidebar in another Stack Exchange.)

Atom totally does this :) By default it always opens with all the tabs from the last session, whether or not they have been saved, with no need to explicitly set this feature. Here I just launched atom and it opens with all tabs from the previous session, including unsaved tabs: If atom is already open and you launch a new instance, it will be blank and ...

Have you tried I2P? I don't know all the functionalities of Psiphon but I2P is pretty good and simple to use. And it's open-source. Check it here. In case you want to use it, you need to either add the repository to your sources, or download the .deb file and install it manually. I recommend the former as it will update automatically (after a sudo apt-get ...

There are a few available, but they are of little to no help on Linux. Starting from Clamtk, Avast and AVG to name a few. The only time I used one was for scanning viruses on my Windows partition. As long as you don't expose yourself to malware and rogue packages/scripts, you may not need it anytime soon. Since most of package management is handled by ...

"that work" No. All of the anti-virus programs for Linux are bogus. Those companies that own that software want you to spend money on them. That is it. Any warning by anti-virus software I myself (in 10+ years or so of using Linux and Unix) have seen have been bogus notices . Often those programs use Windows rules as a means to test Linux files. Never ...

I compared three of the suggestions in here with 64 bit 16.04 Kubuntu: Searchmonkey works with 64-bit Ubuntu nowadays. It is similar to regexxer. It appeared fast, but naturally it is much slower than index based search. Search for Files and Alt-F2 don't work with the KDE Ubuntu version. My recommendation is Recoll and I have added some installation ...

I have recently started using 'Cherrytree'. It is exactly what I would look for as an alternative to onenote. Also other people have good reviews about it on 'ubuntu-one'. You can install it from 'Software centre'. I have also tried Zim-wiki, but I am liking 'Cherrytree' more.
