Messaging Menu for Gnome 3


After using the Gnome Shell for a while, I kind of missed the Messaging Menu from Ubuntu. I saw an Applet for Cinnamon (a Gnome Shell Fork), which covered the Basics of it: easy access to the Messaging Applications.

Using Ideas from that Applet and other Gnome Extensions, I made little Extension myself which is available on the Gnome Website. For now it just shows your Applications in a Menu, but other Features from the original are already planed.

The Source can be found on GitHub, it’s open-source so feel free to help the Project.

This is a little open-Source Tool for Linux I wrote a fear Years back. To be more exact, it’s an Graphical User Interface for the Unix Command “dd“. You can easily select the Input- and Outputstream, so you can clone or image your Hard-drive or Partition. The latest Version 0.8 supports compressed Images.

Wikipedia: “dd is a common Unix program whose primary purpose is the low-level copying and conversion of raw data.”

The original Project with Code, Binaries and Deb-Files for Ubuntu/Debian was hosted on Launchpad, but never saw any changes from the Community besides Translations. So, we made a GitHub Repository to provide easier access.
