metapackage for virtualbox-savvy projects

The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is a software platform for distributed computing: several initiatives of various scientific disciplines all compete for the idle time of desktop computers. The developers' web site at the University of Berkeley serves as a common portal to the otherwise independently run projects. . Regular users (righteously) often find it an unbearable nuisance to care for the exact configuration of BOINC for virtualbox-based projects. This package adds a series of dependencies from the contrib section to the regular boinc package. This also meant this binary package to be redistributed in the contrib section of Debian.


utility to automatically build a Debian package of Google Earth

Google Earth is a 3D planet viewer that lets you interactively navigate satellite imagery, maps, terrain, and so forth. . Google Earth is available for GNU/Linux from their web site, but is non-free software and is undistributable. It also does not integrate well into a Debian system. . This utility makes it possible to build your own personal Debian package of Google Earth. The packaging itself is Free Software, but the Google Earth program is governed by the copyright holder (Google), so you may be limited as to what you can do with the resulting package (i.e. no redistribution, etc). This package will simply help you create the package, it is your responsibility to use the resulting package responsibly.


Utility for creating Java Debian packages

This package provides the capability to build a Debian package from a Java binary distribution by running make-jpkg . (with archive files downloaded from providers listed below) . Supported java binary distributions currently include: * Oracle (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads) : - The Java Development Kit (JDK), version 6, 7 and 8 - The Java Runtime Environment (JRE), version 6, 7 and 8 - The Java API Javadoc, version 6, 7 and 8 Choose tar.gz archives or self-extracting archives (_not_ RPM). . Please note that Debian recommends the use of openjdk-[78]-jdk and/or openjdk-[78]-jre, which are installed by default-jdk or default-jre for most architectures. . java-package will create non-free packages.


Command line interface for libtrain

libtrain is a library for calculating the shortest route from a train station to another in consideration of time and distance. It tells you which line you should take and where you should transfer at. . Note that this is a *library*, so you have to get interface programs using libtrain(gtktrain is recommended) to actually use it. . To use this software, you'll need to get the train schedule data separately and install it by yourself. See README.Debian for more detail. . This package contains a command line interface for libtrain.


cleanup after driver installation with the nvidia-installer

This package ensures that no remnants of the non-free NVIDIA graphics drivers that were installed with the nvidia-installer remain on the system. Such an installation conflicts with the packaged drivers. . Furthermore using the nvidia-installer to install a new version of the drivers is prevented as long as this package is installed.


NVIDIA binary graphics driver support files

This package contains support files needed for all current and legacy versions of the non-free NVIDIA graphics drivers. These include scripts used for warning about a mismatching version of the kernel module or for creating a minimal xorg.conf to enable the NVIDIA driver.


utility to build SAP GUI related Debian packages

This package provides the capability to create a Debian package for the Platinum Java SAP GUI from the provided JAR by just running 'make-sgpkg '.


Oracle SQL Developer Command-Line Debian package builder

This utility makes it possible to build a Debian package from Oracle SQL Developer Command-Line (SQLcl). The Oracle SQL Developer program is governed by the copyright holder (Oracle USA, Inc.), so you may be limited as to what you can do with the resulting package (i.e. no redistribution, etc). This utility will simply help you create the Debian package, it is your responsibility to use the resulting package accordingly with the OTN license, a copy of which is included in the created package, that you must agree on when downloading the source. . This utility will require you to download the architecture independent archive from , identified as "Oracle SQL Developer Command-Line for All Platforms", to create the Debian package from. . Due to a conflicting name with content of package "parallel" the upstream binary "sql" will be renamed. Multiple versions can coexist so "sql.[upstream version].standalone" will invoke a specific version of Oracle SQL Developer Command-Line, "sql.[upstram version]" will invoke either the standalone or bundled Oracle SQL Developer Command-Line version (in this order), while "sqlcl" (the recommended way) and "sqlcl.standalone" take advantage of Debian's alternatives system and, when left in auto mode, will always invoke the highest version installed.


Oracle SQL Developer Debian package builder

This utility makes it possible to build a Debian package of Oracle SQL Developer. The Oracle SQL Developer program is governed by the copyright holder (Oracle USA, Inc.), so you may be limited as to what you can do with the resulting package (i.e. no redistribution, etc). This utility will simply help you create the Debian package, it is your responsibility to use the resulting package accordingly with the OTN license, a copy of which is included in the created package, that you must agree on when downloading the source. . This utility will require you to download the architecture independent archive from , identified as "Oracle SQL Developer for other platforms", "Oracle SQL Developer for Multiple Platforms" or "Oracle SQL Developer for Linux and Unix" (depending on which version you are building), to create the Debian package from.


context-menu items from dropbox for Thunar

Thunar Dropbox is a plugin for thunar that adds context-menu items from dropbox. This plugin does not come with dropbox itself, you will need to install that separately.


Command-line translator using Google Translate, etc.

user-space interfaces for TuxOnIce

TuxOnIce is an alternative implementation to suspend a Linux machine by writing its state to memory for later resuming. A kernel patch for TuxOnIce is available separately. . This package contains several user interfaces which improve the user's experience during the suspend and resume processes. It also adds TuxOnIce support to initramfs and provides a way to configure TuxOnIce settings.

x86 virtualization solution - non-X11 guest utilities

VirtualBox is a free x86 virtualization solution allowing a wide range of x86 operating systems such as Windows, DOS, BSD or Linux to run on a Linux system. . This package provides the non-X11 guest utilities for VirtualBox. These utilities are meant to be run inside the virtual machine. They provide closer integration and allow to share data through shared folders between the host system and the virtual machine. . Either the virtualbox-guest-dkms or the virtualbox-guest-source package is also required in order to compile the kernel modules needed for virtualbox-guest-utils.
