  • MuPDF

    Free Windows Linux Android iPhone iPad ... Xfce Website

    MuPDF is a lightweight PDF and XPS viewer.

    The renderer in MuPDF is tailored for high quality anti-aliased graphics. It renders text with metrics and spacing accurate to within fractions of a pixel for the highest fidelity in reproducing the look of a printed page on screen.

    MuPDF is also small, fast, and yet complete. It supports PDF 1.7 with transparency, encryption, hyperlinks, annotations, searching and more. It also reads OpenXPS documents.

    We don't support interactive features such as form filling, javascript and transitions. MuPDF is written modularly, so such features can be added on by integrators if they so desire.

  • MPV

    Free Mac Windows Linux Android BSD ... Xfce Website

    MPV is an audio and movie player based on Small MPlayer iconMPlayer and Small mplayer2 iconmplayer2. It supports a wide variety of video file formats, audio and video codecs, and subtitle types. It shares some features with the former projects while introducing many more.

    • Streamlined CLI options
      MPlayer's options parser was improved to behave more like other CLI programs, and many option names and semantics were reworked to make them more intuitive and memorable.
    • On Screen Controller
      While mpv has no official GUI, it has a small controller that is triggered by mouse movement.
    • High quality video output
      mpv has an OpenGL based video output that is capable of many features loved by videophiles, such as video scaling with popular high quality algorithms, color management, frame timing, interpolation, and more.
    • GPU video decoding
      mpv leverages the FFmpeg hwaccel APIs to support VDPAU, VAAPI, DXVA2, VDA and VideoToolbox video decoding acceleration.
    • Embeddable
      A straightforward C API was designed from the ground up to make mpv usable as a library and facilitate easy integration into other applications.

  • Terminator

    Free Mac Linux BSD Website

    Terminator, multiple terminals in one window. The goal of this project is to produce a useful tool for arranging terminals. It is inspired by programs such as gnome-multi-term, quadkonsole, etc. in that the main focus is arranging terminals in grids (tabs is the most common default method, which Terminator also supports).

  • Kate

    Free Windows Linux BSD KDE Website

    Text editor for the KDE desktop environment with support for multiple languages and syntax highlighting. It is extensible with plugins. Features a MDI interface.

    Kate is a multi document editor, based on a rewritten version of the kwrite editing widget of KDE, offering all the features of that plus a bunch of its own. Kate has been been moved to the kdesdk package in KDE4, and is a built-in part of your favorite desktop since release 2.2.

    Being a native KDE application, Kate is of course born with networking transparency, as well as it integrates with the outstanding features of KDE. Choose it for viewing HTML sources from konqueror, editing configuration files, writing new applications or any other text editing task. You still need just one running instance of Kate.

    With a multi-view editor like Kate you get a lot of advantages. You can view several instances of the same document and all instances are synced. Or you can view more files at the same time for easy reference or simultaneous editing. The terminal emulation and sidebar are docked windows that can be plugged out of the main window, or replaced therein according to your preference.

    A Windows version is available along with KDE for Windows @ http://windows.kde.org/ .

  • DXVK

    Free Linux Wine Website

    A Vulkan-based translation layer for Direct3D 10/11 which allows running 3D applications on Linux using Wine.

    For the current status of the project, please refer to the project wiki.

    How to use
    In order to install a DXVK package obtained from the release page into a given wine prefix, run the following commands from within the DXVK directory:

    export WINEPREFIX=/path/to/.wine-prefix
    winetricks --force setup_dxvk.verb
    This will copy the DLLs into the system32 and syswow64 directories of your wine prefix and set up the required DLL overrides. Pure 32-bit prefixes are also supported.

    Verify that your application uses DXVK instead of wined3d by checking for the presence of the log files d3d11.log and dxgi.log in the application's directory, or by enabling the HUD (see notes below).

    Build instructions
    Requirements:
    wine 3.10 or newer
    Meson build system (at least version 0.43)
    MinGW64 compiler and headers (requires threading support)
    glslang compile
    Building DLLs
    The simple way
    Inside the DXVK directory, run:

    ./package-release.sh master /your/target/directory --no-package
    This will create a folder dxvk-master in /your/target/directory, which contains both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of DXVK, which can be set up in the same way as the release versions as noted above.

    Compiling manually

    64-bit build. For 32-bit builds, replace

    build-win64.txt with build-win32.txt

    meson --cross-file build-win64.txt --prefix /your/dxvk/directory build.w64
    cd build.w64
    meson configure

    for an optimized release build:

    meson configure -Dbuildtype=release
    ninja
    ninja install
    The D3D10, D3D11 and DXGI DLLs as well as a shell script to set up DXVK for a specific wine prefix will be located in /your/dxvk/directory/bin.

    Notes on Vulkan drivers
    Before reporting an issue, please check the Wiki page on the current driver status and make sure you run a recent enough driver version for your hardware.
