This tiny pdf viewer uses some vim keybinds and renders really fast.

You should try llpp. It's basically mupdf with extra features.

Re: LnF Awards 2011 - The best Light & Fast apps of 2011

Glad to see the comments on Rox.  I was baffled at first to not see it on the list.

Next to Arch itself, Rox is the one thing I've put on my computer that made me both extremely happy and angry at the same time - angry in wondering "Why didn't anyone tell me about this before?!  How did they let me use anything else?!"

If you can, please clean up the https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ROX article. The style is too informal for the wiki, thus it has been marked as poorly written.
Expanding it a bit wouldn't hurt either.

Re: LnF Awards 2011 - The best Light & Fast apps of 2011

I opened a discussion on the rox wiki.  I'd appreciate input from other rox users.

FVWM plays in the same weight class as Openbox and offers a lot of power and fine-grained control. You can get a lot of clever functionality without larding it up with additional programs.

I started using ranger this year; great program.
I've also been finding more and more handy uses for netcat.

LXDM, looks pretty nice and starts faster than lightdm, and is more up to date than slim.

Qtfm would be great if it had volume management (or does it now?).

No it doesn't have volume management. But why not use something like devmon or udiskie for that?

Yeah. Need to try them. Thunar is too much designed to be used with desktop environment. Although it comes with great tool: Bulk Rename. wink

Re: LnF Awards 2011 - The best Light & Fast apps of 2011

Thanks for posting the results. Maybe for 2012 we could come up with a way to tell users to name apps in an uniform way e.g. xfce v xfce4.

Re: LnF Awards 2011 - The best Light & Fast apps of 2011

Apparently using the package name wasn't enough.

2. please enter the EXACT same package name(or group) shown in the arch package repository.

"Light & Fast apps" should probably be "Apps you use and like" tongue

There still might be a problem with cdrtools, cdrkit, wodim and cdrecord.

Or we could blacklist gimp, firefox and libreoffice so that when someone tries to enter those, the spreadsheet doesn't let them.

Re: LnF Awards 2011 - The best Light & Fast apps of 2011

wodim is provided by cdrkit.

Questions:
* Display/Login Managers: what about coreutils, bash, none & login? Are the first three a viable answer?
* Shells: neither rxvt-unicode nor terminal belong here. What's this 'bin' thing?
* Can you burn a CD with 'dd'?
* Is chromium an e-mail client?
* Is rcconf (rc.conf?) a network manager?

I'm pretty sure you cannot burn a CD with 'dd'.
