MacVIM is a vim editor ported into Mac OSX. functionality same as on linux, BSD.
MacVim supports multiple windows with tabbed editing and a host of other features such as:
* bindings to standard OS X keyboard shortcuts (⌘Z, ⌘V, ⌘A, ⌘G, etc.),
* transparent backgrounds,
* full-screen mode,
* multibyte editing with OS X input methods and automatic font substitution,
* ODB editor support,
and more. Most importantly, MacVim brings you the full power of Vim 7.2 to Mac OS X.
ControlEee is an application written in Python/Qt4 that allows users to turn on/off bluetooth, webcam and wlan devices on a EeePC. Often these devices are not used and if they remain active, they increase the power consumption. So if you want your battery to last longer, it’s a good idea to turn them off.
At the moment turning off wlan device is not allowed because it causes a kernel panic (at least on the distribution/hardware I’ve tested this: Ubuntu-eee/AsusEeePC 901).
To run this application you need Python and Qt4 bindings. On a Debian/Ubuntu based distribution you can install them in this way: sudo apt-get install python-qt4
What is USPC?
USPC can list and download packages and dependencies of Ubuntu crawling the http://packages.ubuntu.com/ website.
It’s like package manager but it doesn’t depend of apt or aptitude.
Let’s suppose that you have just installed your (K)ubuntu and you need to compile a driver to your Ethernet card. The problem is: if you don’t have a network card working properly, you can’t use the internet to download the required packages to install the drivers for your network card. If you have a dual boot machine you can use Windows to download the packages and then you can install in your Ubuntu. But, there are so many dependencies that it is quite boring and difficult to find out.
To solve this problem you can use USPC (Ubuntu Simple Package Crawler) to download the package you want and all it’s dependencies!!.
