A bit more than 10 but mostly what I use after OS installation.
Drawing or MyPaint or Drawpile
Flameshot or ksnip or peek
Lutris, Gamehub or Bottles
yt-dlp or tartube
"Or’ means I use either one application or the other depending on the desktop environment etc.
unar & friends
What’s that never heard of?
& friends” because the script will install a few more than just unar itself

Thanks everyone for replies here. Interesting information.
Time to list mine:
My top 10 list as a user:
My install list for post new hardware installation:
quassel bogofilter cpu-x gdb dnfdrake hddtemp icewm kfind task-printing-hp x264 x265 lib64x264_xxx lib64x265_xxx nvme-cli xguest firefox thunderbird google-chrome-stable virtualbox om-midna-sddm szyszka git abf-console-client abb mock rpmdevtools kernel-headers
In my VBox test systems I install firefox, and chromium. So I can test those in vbox along with falkon.
I could drop these:
x264 x265 lib64x264_xxx lib64x265_xxx and use OM codecs from OM-Welcome and in fact I do use OM codes from OM-Welxome for vbox test boxes.
Here’s what we see listed more than once:
(this is already a default package)
Default package means default on the OMLx Plasma ISOs. I don’t know if telegram and telegram-desktop are the same thing?
The package name is
I think just “Telegram” is the common name one is used to call it.
Daily web development with :
MEGA Sync Desktop (fedora rpm works)
Nginx / Mariadb / PHP
Visual Studio Code
Mysql Workbench (was a nightmare to compile in OM 4, fedora rpm works in OM 5)
Private Internet Access (working smoothly with OM 5)
Github Desktop (works in OM 5 but limited use with OM 4 as pinetry-gnome3 is required with electron based apps to sign your commits for example)
Tabby (standalone install)
Strawberry (audio player)
Mousepad (text editor)
Leafpad (text editor)
Viewnior (image viewer)
Ristretto (image viewer)
Tixati (torrent client)
Free Download Manager
Nekoray (VPN/Proxy client)
Fractal (Matrix client)
Double Commander (file manager)
Ocenaudio (audio editor)
MKVToolnix (MKV muxer)
Wine + Ivona (TTS)
Plotbitrate (audio bitrate viewer)
gcc, cmake, make, git…
Just curious about
Nekoray / Wireguard, do you use a fixed-IP for your daily work ?
Currently using Private Internet Access with an addional fee, interesting in any professional setup. I’m mostly using fixed IP with the firewall whitelisting feature to add an extra security layer with a few clients.
No, my IP is not fixed. I use Wireguard VPN all the time to protect my traffic and to bypass blocking, however it’s free. With Nekoray (it usually uses shadowsocks) I can additionally get IP addresses in other countries (it turns out to be a proxy over VPN).
