My granddad recently installed Linux, and he has asked me for a few app recommendations to replace things he had been using on Windows. I know of command-line solutions to his problems, but as we all know, GUIs are sometimes more comfortable to work with, especially when you are new to Linux. The requests I’ve gotten are as follows:
A program that can search the contents of files, including LibreOffice documents.
ripgrep-allis my command-line answer here.
A program that can reduce the size of images. I know of three programs that can handle this: GIMP and ImageMagick’s
mogrifycommands. However, GIMP is very complex and the ImageMagick utilities, of course, are command-line apps. If anyone knows of a simple GUI that can accomplish this, I would be much obliged.
