Read on to find out more! X11 Gestures (GNOME Shell extension for multi-touch gestures on X11) X11 Gestures is a brand-new GNOME Shell extension for multi-touch gestures on X11, created by the Touchegg developer. The extension requires having Touchegg installed (this is an application that runs in the background and transforms touchpad or touchscreen gestures into actions for your desktop).

  • Meet SysMonTask: A Windows Task Manager Lookalike for Linux [Ed: Copying a farce of an OS (with back doors) using Microsoft GitHub account (proprietary software) as if this is what GNU/Linux needs (it has vastly better tools for this)]

    Thanks to the desktop environments, almost all Linux distributions come with a task manager application. In addition to that, there are several other system monitoring applications for Linux that have additional features. But recently I came across a task manager created for Linux that looks like … wait for it … the task manager of Windows.

Flameshot 0.9 Release Brings in Global Shortcut Menu, Latest Uploads, JPEG Support, and More

Flameshot is one of my daily drivers that I utilize to take screenshots. You can also find my guide to use Flameshot on Linux if you want to get it installed and configure it to use it. Now, with the new 0.9 release for Flameshot, it is better than ever before! Unlike Shutter and Ksnip, which received some major updates recently, Flameshot 0.9 does not include big changes but some useful ones. Let me highlight the key changes with this release. [...] Before the update, when you upload a screenshot, the Imgur link was automatically copied to your clipboard. But, if you upload another screenshot, then you lose the previous link unless you have a clipboard manager like CopyQ. Now, with the Latest Uploads section, you get to see all your recent uploads and find the links to them as well. Pretty useful, I think! Not just limited to these two useful feature additions, you can finally change the image format of your screenshot to JPEG instead of PNG if you want save disk space and don’t mind the potential quality loss (especially when trying to scale the images).
