Kupfer – Alternative for gnome-do

A simple, flexible, application launcher for Gnome. Kupfer is a summoner/launcher in the style of Quıcĸsılⅴεʀ; you do not use it to search your files, you use it to summon the object you are thinking about.

Kupfer can right now summon Applications, Recent Files and Places, your chosen folders and their contents, Bookmarks, Windows and Gnu Screen sessions.

The ‘kupfer’ command launches kupfer, or spawns it if it is already running.

Just push enter, if you want to launch the application you see.

Remember, its very fresh application. So it may not work as you expect, but it’s worth a try.

To install it, open Terminal and write:

sudo conary update kupfer=@fl:2-devel

Maybe, just maybe, you need to install a dependency. But I’m a bit unsure about it.

Keepassx – secure personal data management

KeePassX is an application for people with extremly high demands on secure personal data management.

KeePassX saves many different information e.g. user names, passwords, urls, attachments and comments in one single database. For a better management user-defined titles and icons can be specified for each single entry. Furthermore the entries are sorted in groups, which are customizable as well. The integrated search function allows to search in a single group or the complete database.
KeePassX offers a little utility for secure password generation. The password generator is very customizable, fast and easy to use. Especially someone who generates passwords frequently will appreciate this feature.

It may come in handy for some users. To try it out, open Terminal and write:

sudo conary keepassx=@fl:2-devel

As soon we know it’s stable enough in Foresight, we will push it to all repositories.
