    Thumbs up Some useful debian packages to install in knoppix 9.1

    Some things I've found useful to add to knoppix from debian bullseye packages:


    baobab (which you may know as the ubuntu disk usage analyzer)
    xdiskusage
    ncdu (netcurses text mode disk usage analyzer)


    simplescreenrecorder

    (need simplescreenrecorder_0.4.2-2+b1_i386.deb and
    simplescreenrecorder-lib_0.4.2-2+b1_i386.deb)


    osdclock (package name is osdclock)

    osd_cat (package name is xosd-bin)

    A couple of others that are kind of fun:

    xzoom (zoom in and rotate on the screen z to rotate, x to flip x, y to flip y, +/- to zoom, arrows to fine position rectangle)
    grafx2 (256 color paint program like deluxepaint, needs package fonts-tuffy)

    I like to work with monitors and ddc:

    gddccontrol is useful to control your monitors
    ddcutil vcpinfo will tell you what your monitor ddc supports

    with read-edid and edid-decode you can do:
    sudo get-edid | parse-edid or sudo get-edid | edid-decode to get the EDID for your monitor.


    ddccontrol_0.4.4-1.2_i386.deb
    ddccontrol-db_20190826-1_all.deb
    ddcutil_0.9.9-2_i386.deb
    edid-decode_0.1~git20201230.95d81c9-2_i386.deb
    gddccontrol_0.4.4-1.2_i386.deb
    i2c-tools_4.2-1+b1_i386.deb
    libddccontrol0_0.4.4-1.2_i386.deb
    libi2c0_4.2-1+b1_i386.deb
    read-edid_3.0.2-1.1_i386.deb
    usbutils_013-3_i386.deb

    One thing I've noticed on some systems is that get-edid sometimes doesn't work, and if you do "sudo modprobe i2c-dev" that will allow "sudo get-edid" to work properly.
