Anyone know an alternative to GifSplitter? I want an easy way to extract all the frames of an animated gif.

GIMP can do that.

If you are not adverse to the command line, a quick and easy way to do this would be like:

convert source.gif +adjoin frame.gif

More detail and options here: http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/anim_basics/#adjoin

Is there a good web development application? Something like Dreamweaver.

I am not too bothered about the WYSIWYG editor, but i need the code highlights, remote/local tree view, synchronisation and preferably code formatting option.

Parents use ubuntu and need a formatting application as they don't use the terminal at all. Please recommend a good app for this! :D

If youre still looking, perhaps Gnome Format would fit the bill?

i am looking for an alternative for convertxtodvd that converts video files to the dvd format files and one that is easy. also which one would be good to resize a windows partition and make the linux partition larger without screwing up windows or linux, also i need an app that can autobackup stuff at certain times that i set so i don't have to do it manualy. also an archive that will would allow me to easily make archives? thanks.

Dunno.

gparted. But, just as with any partition-modifying app, make a good backup FIRST. ;)

sbackup?

:blink: I right-click, and there is an option for me to create an archive right in the context menu. What is your setup that you don't have this?

A way to play blu-ray movies ... Maybe a plugin for vlc that would let you

play blu-ray disks.

I guess you could try DeVeDe or ManDVD. Not sure how easy they are or how they compare to the app you use on Windows.
