Software

En kori guide til den software, som følger med din Kubuntu-installation.

Spil

KDE's spil inkluderer en utrolig mængde bræt- og logik-spil samt arkade- og strategispil. Morsomme og lærerige spil til børn følger også med. Se webstedet KDE Games med skærmbilleder af spil og endda nogle online-spil. Alle KDE's spil findes i arkiverne, kun et par klik væk. Andre spil som de, der udbydes af Steam og Humble Bundle kan også installeres og spilles i Kubuntu. Find instruktioner på siden om Steam. Du kan finde dine installerede spil i KickOff -> Programmer -> Spil. Følgende spil er installeret som standard:

  • KPat: (også kendt som KPatience) er et afslappende kabale-spil og er installeret som standard. For at vinde skal man arrangere kortene på en given måde. Følgende kabaler følger med: Bedstefar, Bedstefars ur, Edderkop, Fyrre og otte, Golf, Idioten, Klondike, Mod3, Napoleon, Sigøjner, Simple Simon og Yukon. Der findes forskellige spillekort, temaer statistik.

Følgende spil kan installeres med tre klik i Muon Discover. Vælg titlen Games og så typen fx Arcade og lad så markøren svæve over det ønskede spil og klik på knappen installér.

Arkade

  • KBounce: arkadespil med problemløsning for én spiller.
  • KBreakout: Ødelæg så mange mursten som muligt uden at miste bolden.
  • KDiamond: spil med problemløsning for én spiller; lav linjer med tre ens diamanter.
  • KGoldrunner: Hundreder af niveauer med labyrinter, hvor du jagter guldstykker skarpt forfulgt af fjender
  • KLines: Inspireret af Color Lines, enkelt og fængende. Der er en online demonstration af spillet
  • Kolf: Miniature-golfspil med 2D visning set oppefra. Banerne er dynamiske og op til 10 personer ad gangen kan konkurrere. Med Kolf følger forskellige baner og træningskurser.
  • Kollision: Et enkelt spil, hvor man skal undgå en bold.
  • KSame: Et enkelt men udfordrende spil, hvor man skal matche farver efter samme model som !SameGame. Ryd brættet, som er fyldt med flerfarvede kugler.
  • KSpaceduel: Hver af to spillere kontrollerer en rumskib i kredsløb om solen. Opgave er at eliminere opponentens rumskib.

Brætspil

  • Bovo: Et spil for to, som ligner Gomoku (af japansk 五目並べ - bogstaveligt "fem punkter"), hvor opponenterne skiftes til at placere deres respektive piktogram på spillebrættet. (Også kendt som Connect Five, Fem i række, kryds og bolle)
  • KBattleship: Skibe er placeret på brættet (havet). Spillerne prøver at ramme hinandens skibe på skift uden at vide, hvor de er placeret. Den første spiller, som sænker alle skibe vinder spillet.
  • KMahjongg: I dette spil er brikkerne blandet og stablet oven på hinanden i en bestemt form. Spilleren skal så fjerne alle brikkerne parvis fra brættet ved at finde ens brikker.
  • KReversi: er et enkelt spil for én spiller mod computeren. Hvis en spillers brik fanges af modstanderen, så vendes brikken så den får modstanderens farve. Vinderen er den, der har flest brikker på brættet, når der ikke er flere mulige træk.
  • KShisen: Et kabaleagtigt spil med standard Mahjongg-brikker. I modsætning til Mahjongg har KShisen kun et lag af blandede brikker.

Kortspil

  • LsKat: Lieutnant Skat (fra tysk "Offiziersskat") er et morsomt og engagerende kortspil for to, hvor den anden spiller enten er en person eller spillets indbyggede kunstige intelligens. Du kan også spille og afprøve en online-version af dette spil.

  • KJumpingcube: Vind alle felterne på brættet ved enten at tage et tomt felt eller erobre dem fra modstanderen. Et felt med maksimum point vil fordele sine point til de omgivende felter, hvorved tomme felter erobres. Pas på kædereaktioner!

Logik

  • KAtomic: Et både morsomt og lærerigt spil bygget op om molekylær geometri. Det anvender en forenklet todimensionel fremstilling af forskellige molekyler. Du kan også spille en demonstrationsudgave af spillet online.
  • KBlackbox: er en gemmeleg spillet på et gitter med bokse, hvor computeren har gemt nogle kugler.
  • KMines er det klassiske minesøger-spil. Ideen er at afdække alle felterne uden at betræde nogen af minerne. Når en mine eksploderer er spillet tabt.
  • KNetwalk: Et logikspil for én spiller. Konstruér et netværk som forbinder alle terminalerne til serveren med i få træk som muligt.
  • KSquares: Et sjovt og spændende spil til skrivebordet. Spillet er baseret på det velkendte papir og blyants-spil Dots and Boxes.
  • KSudoku: Et spil, hvor man skal bruge logik for at placere symboler. Spilleren skal udfylde et kvadrat, sådan at hver kolonne og hver række samt hver kvadratisk blok i spillefeltet indeholder hvert symbol én gang.

Strategi

Utilities

Your newly installed Kubuntu system has some utilities already installed. One of the most useful is not in your menus; just press ALT + F2. Look at the top of your screen; there is one of your most powerful utilities, called Krunner. See more here: Krunner.

The following utility applications are installed by default:

  • Kate is the default text editor for KDE. It has many great features for editing plain text or writing code in many different languages.
  • Ark is the default tool for handling archives of files such as tar, gzip, bzip2, zip, rar and 7z.
  • Klipper is a clipboard to hold copied text for later use. Unlike other clipboards it will hold your entire copied text, rather than just one line.

  • Konsole is the KDE terminal emulator, it can be used to run console shells.

Sh

The Bourne shell (sh) was one of the major shells used in early versions of the Unix operating system and became a de facto standard. Every Unix-like system has at least one shell compatible with the Bourne shell. The Bourne shell program name is sh and it is typically located in the Unix file system hierarchy at /bin/sh. The Bourne shell is usually used as fallback for Bash or another shell. The features of the Bourne shell are quite limited if compared to something like Bash.

Bash

Bash stands for "Bourne again shell", a bit of a play on words. For many Linux distribution Bash is the default shell. The Bash command syntax is a superset of the Bourne shell command syntax. Among the features of Bash are: command line editing, command history, the directory stack, the $RANDOM and $PPID variables, and POSIX command substitution syntax $(..)/ When used as an interactive command shell and pressing the tab key, Bash automatically uses command line completion to match partly typed program names, filenames and variable names. Bash syntax simplifies I/O redirection in ways that are not possible in the traditional Bourne shell. For example Bash can redirect standard output (stdout) and standard error (stderr) at the same time using the &> operator.

Using the Terminal

Zsh

The Z shell (zsh) is a Unix shell that can be used as an interactive login shell and as a powerful command interpreter for shell scripting. Zsh can be thought of as an extended Bourne shell with a large number of improvements, including some features of bash, ksh, and tcsh. Among its features are: programmable command-line completion, sharing of command history among all running shells, spelling correction, theme-able prompts and it is fully customizable. Attesting to the sheer size of this shell is the famous first sentence of the shell's manual page, which reads "Because zsh contains many features, the zsh manual has been split into a number of sections", and then goes on to list seventeen items.

For a comparison of command shells see this page: Comparison of command shells

Firewall configuration

Ufw

Ufw is the default commandline configuration tool for the firewall. Ufw stands for Uncomplicated Firewall, it is develop to ease iptables firewall configuration. For more information about ufw see: UFW

Gufw

Gufw is a GUI frontend to ufw. By default it is not installed, to install it run the following command from a terminal (Konsole): sudo apt-get install gufw

For more information about gufw see: Gufw

Other Useful Utilities

Available in the repositories.

  • Filelight creates an interactive map of concentric, segmented rings that help visualise disk usage on your computer.
  • Yakuake is a drop-down terminal emulator based on KDE Konsole technology.
  • Synaptiks is the KDE touchpad configuration tool.

KDE also brings you utilities, tools, and accessories to ease your work. See Utilities & Tools for more.
