Productivity tools for Linux and Compiere (and Windows too)

Postby neilg » Mon Jun 27, 2005 4:08 am

XML - kxmleditor
aqua data studio - sql queries, import data
iSQLViewer - good potential but seems to have bugs with import/export
XML etc.
eclipse - of course, the java IDE
mail - thunderbird
browser - of course, firefox
henplus - command line query tool like sqlplus but a real gem
realplayer - audio stimulation :)
kate - text editor of choice
knowit - notes in a hirearchical structure
kdissert - just looked at it now but worth a mention looks so promising
html editing - open for suggestions - nothing yet
vmware - run windows on linux - can we really be productive without windows?

Anyone got any other good apps they use that help productivity?

ok. ok.

Here is my version in Windows:

1) Notepad (nothing else works for me)

2) DOS prompt (when nothing else really works for me)

3) F1 (cool man, its just the button, not that racing cartel)

All I can think of to say to Red1's list of tools: scary!

Just on another topic I'm a big Linux fan but it was a lot of sweat and tears and lost productivity but I don't look back, best decision I made. However I'm still using Vmware and I think it is a good bridge to help ease the transition, and it is a brilliant piece of software IMHO

druid.sourceforge.net

Druid from sourceforge seems to be a must have for this list

Copy and paste table structures....

Good shot Neil, but in order to be more usefull for Compiere we have some modidifcations for Druid :).

I hope to publish them soon.

But i found that Druid has one major problem. Once defined tables and columns i can create only SQL for only one Database server, for example only for Oracle. Or at least i do not know how to create SQLs for other DBs.

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Trifon,

Are you using the most recent version? I will look and see if I can generate for another DB.

Aqua Data Studio has moved to the top of my list of DB tools and surpasses Tora . It actually executes PL/SQL without having oracle on your machine, that has been a big problem for me for a while.

Yes, I use most recent version. The problem is that sql type remmaping is not working, or at least i didn't managed to use it.
"SQL type mapping" is located in "Generation"--> modules -->""Sql Script"

An old favourite - MS-Access

Postby neilg » Thu Jun 30, 2005 7:16 pm

MS-Access (using the oracle client, and ODBC) of course a winner. If you're on linux, combine it with VMWare. Feels like selling out but productivity in a tight spot - no brainer.

kdissert is a winner

Postby neilg » Sun Jul 03, 2005 12:49 pm

Kdissert is fast becoming one of those apps I use on a daily basis. You can find it on http://wwww.kde-apps.org . You create documents which look like one of those maps people use at university when studying a complex subject. Use it for flowcharts, todo lists, etc.

Suggestion if you do try it: download the version directly from kdeapps, don't go to the home page. The one on the home page is a bit older and I experienced some crashes until I upgraded,

Also have a problem moving notes around with clicking and dragging. Have solved it by changing the shortcuts 'alt-arrow' to move , to just 'arrow' (for each of the arrow keys, up, down , left, right)

kdissert - problem with ucs.sty when generating Latex

Postby neilg » Thu Jan 19, 2006 3:11 pm

Problem with ucs.sty on the Latex book generation.

(Generate to a folder then use make, make view)

Download: http://www.unruh.de/DniQ/latex/unicode/unicode.tgz

Unzip somewhere

Code: Select all
su -c "cp ucs.sty utf8x.def ucsencs.def ucsutils.sty data/* /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/ucs"
