I need a simple app that logs and gives a unique name to every file within a set of directories every time they're modified (individually).

Yes, I know someone proficient in bash could do that, but I'm crap at writing scripts.

What a trivial set of features to implement!

Main Features of Privacy Eraser Pro

  • Erase Internet Explorer Cache Files
  • Erase Internet Explorer Browser History
  • Erase Internet Explorer Cookies
  • Erase Internet Explorer Address Bar History
  • Erase Internet Explorer Index.dat Files
  • Erase Internet Explorer AutoComplete Memory
  • Erase Windows Recent Documents History
  • Erase Windows Start Menu Run/Find History
  • Erase Windows Recycle Bin
  • Erase Windows Temporary Files Directory
  • Erase Windows MediaPlayer Recent File List
  • Erase Internet history from Google/Yahoo
  • Support Mozilla/Firefox, AOL, Netscape, Opera
  • Select which cookies you want to keep
  • File Shredder - Secure delete files & folders
  • Cleaning Free Disk Space - FAT/FAT32/NTFS
  • Scheduled Tasks & Plug-Ins Support
  • Free space on your Hard Drive!
  • Speed up your computer!

Set your Firefox privicy settings up, and you got pretty much all of this (except defrag NTFS and other silliness).

Or use a LiveCD if you are exceptionally paranoid.

I would never use linux on my desktops/laptops/mediacenter, but on my server i would love to see linux.
But since i SUCK at linux, i would love some setupapp. like you find in windows server 2003/2008 when you log in the first time.

This probably exists, and I'm just ignorant?

Are you talking about setting up a user account? Or setting up services, like http, SMB filesharing and such?

A tool that some people use, especially on a remote-administered box, is webmin.

For a local box, the various distros often offer tools for just that. Red Hat / Fedora have their system-config-xxxxx apps that will present a GUI window to configure various aspects of the system.

itunes/quicktime - Pretty much all of the popular audio players for linux can copy to ipod's (I'm not sure about iPod Touch's yet). Although I don't use podcasts, I've seen options for them in some audio players and I' fairly sure you could sync them as well.

clone dvd2 - Not sure if clone dvd2 has any special abilities or anything, but there's ways to backup and clone dvd's under linux. Tools like dvd decryptor dvd shrink work under wine if you don't want to use the native linux apps.

mp3tag - I use a progra called Easy Tag, which is similar to "Tag & Rename". But yeh there's tagging programs for linux.

SE Phone - I have no idea about this

Logitech stuff - Again as I don't have them, I don't know. And can't be arsed to google to find out.

convertxtodvd - Works under wine, but there's linux alternatives like DeVeDe as well.

media convert to mp3? - Not too sure what you need, but there's numerous ways to encode files to mp3 either via the command line or with gui's.

For iPod you can through Rockbox on it and then be free of stupid software like iTunes. Amarok will take care of everything else (better).

There isn't a substitute for AnyDVD but there are plenty of ripping apps for Linux.

You can run Mp3tag in Wine: http://www.anytag.de...?showtopic=3646 Or use an alternative. I actually use foobar2000 in Wine.

No idea about your telephone. I don't buy hardware which relies on proprietary software.

Logitech don't support Linux, but you can get your mouse and keyboard extra functions to work, it just takes some work.

For encoding MP3s, LAME runs on Linux anyway. For videos, XviD and x264 both run on Linux so no problem there. There are plenty of frontends for all of these, check out: http://www.videohelp...nux-video-tools OGMRip looks nice. I actually use Handbrake CLI for encoding.

As far as the ipod podcast support i use rhythmbox and gpodder. I don't actually use an ipod due to my extreme disdain for apple and the fact that I refuse to pay for an overpriced under featured mp3 player that doesn't support my formats of choice ( use to be wmv now is ogg and flac) but they will work with an ipod.

Does anybody know of any way to get a zune series 2 to work with linux? My girlfriend has one and i'm trying to get her to switch but she has a zune and i can't get it to work.

As far as the topic of this thread i'd love to see more real current big named games made native for linux. I know that UT3 and Enemy Territories work natively and that it's not to hard to get WOW working under wine but Linux needs native game support weather they get DX working on it or convince more companies to use open gl I really need games (only reason i'm not running only linux).
Also a good HD video editing program and some software for publishing podcasts would rock ( if anybody knows of such software plz tell me I really need it)

Rockbox for Zune is in the works I believe, so wait for that.

Yes, more games need to be released for Linux. EA have talked about the next Battlefield game being available for OSX so from there it should be trivial to get it working on Linux. What would also be great is if more game developers checked out how their game works in Wine. All Steam/Source games work great in Wine with no special configuration needed. That can't be said of most games, though. Google have started distributing software for Linux that depends on Wine (ie. Cedega, Google Earth) and I don't have a problem with using Wine to play games. It would be great if games developers could start contributing patches, like Crossover do (commercial Wine vendor which specialise in getting Office and the like to work well).
