Linux Software List

! NOTE !
Like most 'LINKS' pages on the web, there will, no doubt,
be more and more dead links on this page over time.
It may be years at a time before I return to this page to
remove dead links and replace some links with better links.
In the meantime, try 'WEB SEARCH' links provided on this page.

Finding info on this page :

You can use the 'Find' option of your browser to find keywords on this page,
such as 'audio' or 'video' or 'movie' or 'edit' or 'play' or 'office' or 'pdf' or 'network' or 'web'.


Downloading-Installing the software :

By a 'master' (or 'home') site, I mean the main information site --- often the site of the author(s) of the software. At the 'master'/'home' site, you can (usually) get information on a reliable download site --- or, if necessary, download the software from the 'home' site.

NOTE: Although the 'home page' of some of these software sites have a link to a 'downloads' page, it is generally best to use the 'package manager' of your Linux distro to download the software in a form that is compatible with versions of the software utility libraries that are on your distro.

Alternatively, if you are using a Linux distro based on Debian-packages, you may find it helpful to use the 'snapshot.debian.org' site to download a version of the software that is compatible with your (old) distro, as described here.

Using the 'home' site or a 'trusted' site (like 'snapshot.debian.org') helps reduce the likelihood of getting packages that are contaminated with sociopathic viruses, trojan horses, key-loggers, and the like.

'WEB-DIRECTORY' pages on LinuxSoftware

< Go to Table of Contents, above. >

< Go to Home page. >

It seems that 'web directories' are dying out. Google and Yahoo closed theirs down around 2014. Then around 2017, the directory from which the Google and Yahoo web-directories were spawned --- the DMOZ "Open Directory Project" closed down.

It seems that it is just not feasible for a team of people to keep up with all the sites that are going dead and the new sites that appear.

About a year after the dmoz.org site closed down, it appears that a new web-directory site --- curlie.org --- arose from the ashes of 'dmoz.org'. It remains to be seen how long that web-directory lasts.

Following are a few links related to 'web directory' sites.
