Involved Projects and Packages
ocrodjvu is a wrapper for OCR systems, that allows you to perform OCR
on DjVu files.
PStreams allows you to run another program from your C++ application and to
transfer data between the two programs, similar to shell pipelines. The PStreams
class works like a wrapper for the the POSIX.2 functions popen(3) and pclose(3)
(although it doesn't actually use them), using a C++ iostreams interface,
instead of C's stdio library. Thus, PStreams makes it possible to run an
external program and handle its stdin, stdout, and stderr just like you would
handle any other C++ iostream.

KBFX is an alternative to the classical K-Menu button and it's menu. It
improves the user experience by enabling the user to set a bigger (and
thus more visible) start button and by finally replacing the Win95-like
K-Menu. But if you still want the old menu, because you're used to it, it
is still available as an option in KBFX. We recommend, however, that you
give the Spinx bar a try.
