Backup – simple and intelligent

However much you stress on the importance of backupm people will forget about keeping it. So, if you do need a completely automated and simple backup then consider using “Back In Time“.

Description:

BackInTime is a simple backup system for Linux inspired from
“flyback project” and “TimeVault”. The backup is done by taking
snapshots of a specified set of directories.
This package contains the GNOME frontend of BackInTime.

For installation:

sudo yum install backintime-gnome

geary mail – gnome mail client

A new mail client is coming in town.

Gnome is working on new mail client called geary. Currently only supports imap accounts.

Description:

              Geary is a new email reader for GNOME designed to let you read your
email quickly and effortlessly. Its interface is based on
conversations, so you can easily read an entire discussion without
having to click from message to message. Geary is still in early
development and has limited features today, but we’re planning to add
drag-and-drop attachments, lightning-fast searching, multiple account
support and much more. Eventually we’d like Geary to have an
extensible plugin architecture so that developers will be able to add
all kinds of nifty features in a modular way.

So, do keep a watch on the client. The looks of the client are very nice and I liked the interface too much. Waiting for them to support more type of accounts and also support configuration of authentication types.

 

nautilis fork ( File manager ) with tree view in sidebar.

Was searching for this for sometime now, finally found it.

sudo yum install nemo
sudo yum list nemo*

First just install nemo. Configure nemo not to interfere with default desktop and also make it default handler. So, here are the settings that would do it.

gconftool-2 --set  /desktop/gnome/applications/component_viewer/exec --type 'string' 'nemo "%s"'
gconftool-2 --set  /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/trash/command --type 'string' 'nemo "%s"'
gsettings set org.nemo.desktop show-desktop-icons false

Now, if you need more functionality in file manager then check the list of nemo packages from the output of second command of yum. It has plugins like file preview and so on. Install and enjoy.
