fast-paced, polished OpenGL demonstration by Excess

Amoeba is a fast-paced, cross-platform OpenGL demonstration by Excess, showing realtime graphics effects in perfect sync with music. It features a full customizable demo engine, several visual effects, lots of graphics and a pumping soundtrack. . Amoeba won first prize in the demo competition at Underscore 02, a demoscene party held in Gothenburg, Sweden. . Note that this is only the demo engine -- to watch the demo itself, you will also need the package amoeba-data.


utility for switching the GLX implementation

In setups with several GLX providers (e.g. the free MESA implementation and proprietary graphics hardware vendor implementations) this utility allows one to switch between the different implementations. . Use 'update-glx --config glx' to select an implementation. . In addition to updating the alternatives, this will trigger further actions needed to complete the switch.


tool for configuring the NVIDIA graphics driver

The nvidia-settings utility is a tool for configuring the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver. It operates by communicating with the NVIDIA X driver, querying and updating state as appropriate. This communication is done with the NV-CONTROL X extension. . Values such as brightness and gamma, XVideo attributes, temperature, and OpenGL settings can be queried and configured via nvidia-settings.

tool for configuring the NVIDIA graphics driver (Tesla 460 version)

The nvidia-settings utility is a tool for configuring the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver. It operates by communicating with the NVIDIA X driver, querying and updating state as appropriate. This communication is done with the NV-CONTROL X extension. . Values such as brightness and gamma, XVideo attributes, temperature, and OpenGL settings can be queried and configured via nvidia-settings.


deprecated X configuration tool for non-free NVIDIA drivers

This tool is deprecated. The NVIDIA drivers now automatically integrate with the Xorg Xserver configuration. Creating an xorg.conf is no longer needed for normal setups. . The nvidia-xconfig program helps with manipulation of X configuration files, primarily for systems that use the non-free drivers provided by NVIDIA. It automatically changes the configuration to use the NVIDIA driver and can add additional options given on the command line.


Interactive White Board Application (contrib extras, metapackage)

OpenBoard is an open source cross-platform interactive white board application designed primarily for use in schools. . It was originally forked from Open-Sankoré, which was itself based on Uniboard. . This package pulls in some contributions that are nice to have in OpenBoard, but have problematic licenses (and are, thus, shipped as part of Debian non-free).


Etoys activity for Sugar Learning Platform

Sugar Learning Platform promotes collaborative learning through Sugar Activities that encourage critical thinking, the heart of a quality education. Designed from the ground up especially for children, Sugar offers an alternative to traditional “office-desktop” software. . Learner applications in Sugar are called Activities. They are software packages that automatically save your work - producing specific instances of the Activity that can be resumed at a later time. Many Activities support learner collaboration, where multiple learners may be invited to join a collective Activity session. . Squeak Etoys was inspired by LOGO, PARC-Smalltalk, Hypercard, and starLOGO. It is a media-rich authoring environment with a simple, powerful scripted object model for many kinds of objects created by end-users. It includes 2D and 3D graphics, images, text, particles, presentations, web-pages, videos, sound and MIDI, etc. It includes the ability to share desktops with other Etoy users in real-time, so many forms of immersive mentoring and play can be done over the Internet. . The Etoys activity embeds Squeak Etoys into Sugar.


x86 virtualization solution - 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 X11 guest utilities for VirtualBox. These utilities are meant to be run inside the virtual machine. They provide closer integration and improve the interactive performance.

/contrib/vnc-java/vnc-java

VNC java applet and command line program

VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is, in essence, a remote display system which allows you to view a computing `desktop' environment not only on the machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the Internet and from a wide variety of machine architectures. . This is the vnc java applet files that the vnc-server can distribute to the client. . It also includes the TightVNC patches from http://www.tightvnc.com/


X.Org X server -- IVTV display driver

This package provides the driver for the overlay framebuffer provided by the iTVC15 family of MPEG codecs. The iTVC15 family includes the iTVC15 (CX24315) and iTVC16 (CX24316). These chips are commonly found on Hauppauge's WinTV PVR-250 and PVR-350 TV capture cards. . This driver requires the IVTV kernel module provided by the ivtv-source package.
