This page is a topical index of the software we explicitly install on Ubuntu while creating Perkify. See Perkify - Package List for a tabular presentation.

Categories

The categories listed below are mostly drawn from the Package List. However, some packages fall into multiple categories, so you should expect a certain amount of duplication.

Accessibility

Most of our support for accessibility has to do with visual impairments. For example, although Braille literacy is far from universal, Braille support is very important to many blind users. Speech input and output (e.g., screen readers) is also very important.

Administration

One of the nice things about Linux is that system and network administration can be done by running commands and editing text files.

Audio, Video

Audio and video support is important for a broad class of users.

Communication

Linux has lots of accessible tools for communication, via chat, email, messages, VoIP, etc.

Desktops, Tools

Documentation

Games, etc.

Images, etc.

Mathematics

OCR Support

Programming

Terminal Support

Everything Else
