PeaZip 6.0.1 (KDE Archiving/Backup)

Sun, 2016/05/01 - 3:34pm
ThumbnailPeaZip 6.0.1
(KDE Archiving/Backup)
PeaZip is a cross-platform, desktop neutral file archiver utility that provides an unified portable GUI (Qt and GTK2) for many Open Source technologies like 7-Zip, FreeArc, PAQ, UPX...

Create 7Z, ARC, BZ2, GZ, *PAQ, PEA, QUAD/BALZ, TAR, UPX, WIM, XZ, ZIP files

Extract over 150 archive types: ACE, ARJ, CAB, DMG, ISO, LHA, RAR, UDF, ZIPX and many more...

Features of PeaZip includes extract, create and convert multiple archives at once, create self-extracting archives, split/join files, strong encryption with two factor authentication, encrypted password manager, secure deletion, find duplicate files, calculate hashes, export job definition as scripts.

Installation and integration in *x systems:

In order to reduce dependencies installable PeaZip packages for Linux needs to satisfy, since release 5.9.0 all backend except for p7zip were moved to "Optional Formats" plugin, which can be installed separately if needed extracting the package in peazip/res directory.
The plugin is not needed by Portable versions of the software.

If experiencing problems running PeaZip compiled for Qt, start it as:
peazip -style=cleanlooks

If experiencing problems with PeaZip compiled for Qt widgetset, it is available PeaZip compiled for GTK2 libraries as alternative, or it is possible to compile the application for its own Qt version using Lazarus/FreePascal IDE, which supports compiling the sources for various widgetsets: Win32, WinCE, fpGUI, Carbon, Qt, GTK1, GTK2.

On Linux systems, PeaZip installer automatically create menu entries for KDE (on most versions); to add PeaZip to Gnome menu copy the "Archiving" folder placed in PeaZip/Freedesktop_integration/nautilus-scripts to system's Nautilus script's folder (in most versions open "Scripts" menu in system's context menu, and select "Open script's folder").

Qt widgetset packages requires Qt 4.5 or more recent, and needs installed in /usr/local/lib or equivalent directory (copy the file and run ldconfig; it is done automatically in installable packages), such as /usr/lib or /usr/lib32 on some 64 bit distributions.
A copy of is available in PeaZip's directory, ./usr/local/share/PeaZip/ for the installable packages.
If the Qt version does not start on some systems, as some system's visual styles may cause recursive repainting error, you can fix the problem starting it in a console (or script) as: peazip -style=cleanlooks

On 64 bit systems, backend binaries in PeaZip/res path can be freely replaced by users with respective 64 bit counterpart (if available).

PeaZip Portable is standalone software and doesn't need installation and can be used from removable or remote paths without changing the host system (useful is system needs to stay library-freezed).

'Freedesktop_integration' folder in PeaZip's path contains .desktop files and Nautilus scripts to help users to configure tighter integration of PeaZip with desktop environment's menus.

Take a break 1.3 (Plasma 5 Plasmoid)

Sat, 2016/04/30 - 2:17pm
ThumbnailTake a break 1.3
(Plasma 5 Plasmoid)
Widget (plasmoid) for plasma panel.
Shows an icon when it is time to take a break.

Problem: Sometimes you don't remember that you have to take a break. And sometimes you remember that you have to take a break, but you don't remember when you took a break last time.

Solution: The 'Take a break' widget, that shows an icon when it is time to take a break.


  • Not intrusive: It doesn't show any dialog nor any buttons to be clicked. It just shows an icon in the panel when it is time to take a break.

  • Unattended: You don't have to do anything. Everything is automatic. The widget detects when you are taking a break and when you come back.

  • Easy configuration: You only have to enter two values in the widget config: The 'work time' and the 'break time'.

  • And of course, easy use:

  • At start, the widget shows a countdown with the minutes to take next break.

  • When the countdown reaches zero, a tired face icon is shown in the panel, with a red background. It means that it is time to take a break.

  • The tired face with the red background is kept if you continue working.

  • If you are idle (not using mouse nor keyboard) for the configured 'break time' less one minute, the program considers that you are taking a break, and shows a yellow background in the tired face.

  • If you are idle for the configured 'break time', the program considers that you have completed the break, and shows a green background in the tired face.

  • If you come back (use the mouse or keyboard) while showing the green background, the countdown will be shown and restarted.

  • If you come back while still showing the yellow background, the program considers that you haven't completed the break, so a red background will be shown again.

  • What if you took a short break, but you want to restart the countdown? No problem, you only have to click on the widget whenever you want to restart the countdown.

  • The widget works in horizontal panels, in vertical panels, and in desktop.

    Want to save space in the panel? Use the "hide&show" mode:

  • To enable the "hide&show" mode, just control+click on the widget (click on the widget while pressing the "control" key).

  • Least important information (the countdown) will be hidden, and most important information (the tired face icon) will be shown.

  • If you want to see the countdown, just pass the mouse slowly over the widget zone, and the countdown will be shown for five seconds.

  • To disable the "hide&show" mode, just control+click on the widget again.

  • If you don't want the countdown to be shown when passing the mouse over the widget zone, then enable the "hide&show" mode by using "control+shift+click" instead of "control+click".

  • Alternatively you can configure the "hide&show" mode at "Advanced" preferences.


  • KDE 5 (Plasma 5).


  • Right click on any panel widget (for example, in the kde menu widget) and select 'Panel options' -> 'Add widgets...' -> 'Get new widgets' -> 'Download new Plasma widgets'.

  • Search for 'Take a break', and click on 'Install'.

  • The installation is done. Now we are going to add the plasmoid to the panel:

  • Right click on any panel widget (for example, in the kde menu widget) and select 'Panel options' -> 'Add widgets...'.

  • Search for 'Take a break', and double-click on the item found. The plasmoid will be added to the panel. If you prefer to add the widget to the desktop, then drag the item found and drop it to the desktop.

  • Move the plasmoid to your favourite place.


  • Download the file 'take_a_break.plasmoid' to some folder in your hard disk.

  • Right click on any panel widget (for example, in the kde menu widget) and select 'Panel options' -> 'Add widgets...' -> 'Install widget from local file...'.

  • A file selection window will be shown. Go to the folder (where you saved the file to), select the downloaded file, and click on Ok.

  • The installation is done. Now we are going to add the plasmoid to the panel:

  • Right click on any panel widget (for example, in the kde menu widget) and select 'Panel options' -> 'Add widgets...'.

  • Search for 'Take a break', and double-click on the item found. The plasmoid will be added to the panel. If you prefer to add the widget to the desktop, then drag the item found and drop it to the desktop.

  • Move the plasmoid to your favourite place.


  • Right click on any panel widget (for example, in the kde menu widget) and select 'Panel options' -> 'Panel preferences'.

  • Rigth-click on the plasmoid (Take a break), and click on 'Remove this Take a break'.

  • The plasmoid has been removed from the panel. Now we are going to uninstall it. Open a shell and run this command:

    plasmapkg2 --remove org.kde.contrib.takeabreak


    The source code is into the file 'take_a_break.plasmoid', that is a zip file. So to see the source code, you only have to rename it to a .zip extension, and then unzip it:

    mv take_a_break.plasmoid


    The license of this program is the GPLv3. See 'COPYING.GPLv3' file in the source code.

    The tired icon (face-yawn.svg) is part of the 'Breeze icon theme', and its license is the LGPLv3. See 'COPYING.LGPLv3' file in the source code, and

    1.0 (2015-10-18) First version.
    1.1 (2015-11-01) hide&show mode. Desktop support.
    1.2 (2015-12-26) Advanced config.
    1.3 (2016-04-30) "m" auto position. Hide "m".

    glnemo2 1.10.0 (KDE Scientific)

    Thu, 2016/04/28 - 8:10pm
    Thumbnailglnemo2 1.10.0
    (KDE Scientific)
    Glnemo2 is an interactive 3D visualization program which displays particles positions of the different components (gas, stars, disk, dark mater halo, bulge) of an N-body snapshot. It's a very useful tool for everybody running N-body simulations from isolated galaxies to cosmological simulations. It can show quickly a lot of information about data by revealing shapes, dense areas, formation of structures such as spirals arms, bars, peanuts or clumps of galaxies. Glnemo2 has been designed to meet the requirements of the user, with simplicity in mind, easy to install, easy to use with an interactive and responsive graphical user interface (based on Digia QT 5.X API) , powerful with a fast 3D engine (OPenGL and GLSL), and generic with the possibility to load different kinds of input files.

    You can zoom in/out, rotate, scale, translate, select different particles
    and plot them in different blending colors, color particles according to their density,
    play with the density threshold, trace orbits, play different time steps, take automatic
    screenshots to make movies, select particles using the mouse, fly over your simulation
    using camera path. All this features are accessible from a very intuitive graphic user interface.

    Currently, glnemo2 reads:
    - NEMO files (
    - Gadget 1 and 2 -little and big endian- files (
    - Gadget3 HDF5
    - RAMSES files (
    - TIPSY files (
    - FITS files, 2D and 3D datacube (
    - FTM files (Clayton Heller's sph/nbody code)
    - phiGRAPE file (
    - list of files stored in a file
    - realtime gyrfalcON simulation via a network plugin (see $NEMO/usr/jcl/glnemo2/gyrfalcon/README)

    Glnemo2 uses a plugin mechanism to load data, so it's easy to add a new file reader.
    It uses the latest OpenGL technology like, shaders (glsl), vertex buffer object, frame buffer object, and takes in account the power of your graphic card to accelerate the rendering. Millions of particles can be rendered, in real time, with a fast GPU.

    Glnemo2 runs fine on Linux, Windows(using minGW compiler), and MaxOSX, thanks to the QT4/QT5 API.
