re-installing Mac OS X: software I use
Friday, 24 April 2009
I recently wiped my Mac laptop to upgrade to 10.5. (Finally! At least I installed Leopard before Snow Leopard comes out.) This post is mainly for me to list all the stuff I install -- a list I generated when scouring my machine before wiping it.
~/bin/ wget p4 darwin ports (/opt/local) ActivePython (all versions) ActivePerl (/usr/local/ActivePerl-*...) MySQL (/usr/local/mysql) XCode (from Leopard CD, dunno if need more recent one) Growl /Applications Skype Google Notifier Caffeine Firefox Adium Colloquy Transmission PDK Komodo Pixelmator.app Snapz Pro X Thunderbird TweetDeck^H Twitterific UnRarX VLC ffmpegX iTerm iTunes iPhoto ImageMixer 3 for Panasonic (for getting video off my video camera) CanoScan Toolbox X (for my Canon LiDE 25 scanner, http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0028265.asp, driver: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=11463) Subversion (Leopard has 1.4.4, want 1.6?)
