Packrat Apps: GCStar, Tellico, Kabikaboo

Software

Desktop and laptop computers are great tools for organizing our worlds of things and ideas. The FOSS world of Linux applications offers perhaps more choices for cataloging and categorizing our collections than any other platform. This week's Linux Picks focuses on applications to help you track your stuff. The software handles a variety of both material and intellectual collections.

GCstar Collections Manager stores details on each item and can be tailored for additional information such as location or to whom you lent it. It lets you search and filter your collection by many criteria.

Tellico specializes in tracking eclectic collections such as your books, videos, music, liquor inventory and anything else. It comes loaded with many default templates for cataloging books, bibliographies, videos, music, video games, coins, stamps, trading cards, comic books and more.

Kabikaboo is a simple tree-branch note organizer. At first blush, including it with the other two picks this week might seem to be a stretch. Designed initially as an aid in tracking notes for writing things like novels, it is a tree-based note pad. This makes it ideal to plan a book or any other complex project involving structured notes or organized outlines.

These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more
