After some time of daily use, I realised that I need some apps more for my Ubuntu eee pc:
- Freemind for mind mapping,
- StarDict for multilingual dictionaries,
- Adobe Reader as it is the standard reader of PDFs.
Freemind and StarDict are easy. Install as root in the usual way from the shell:
apt-get install freemind stardict
Adobe Reader I tried the same way but it didn’t work… Mmmh… easy way, then: download the .deb source, then, always from the shell:
dpkg -i AdobeReader_ita-8.1.3-1.i386.deb
Ubuntu places in its menu the icons correctly of StarDict and Adobe Reader, while Freemind I resolved adding the icon manually.
Does anyone know how to add dictionaries in StarDict so to work offline? Please, leave a comment below!
