Finding Linux Applications

Welcome to the launch of We are a new site devoted to making it easier to find valuable Linux applications. The database is still in its infancy and we have already identified many more programs to be added. Please check back regularly for updates.

Since many Linux applications are free and have no marketing to inform the public of their existence, it is often difficult to find the right program when it is needed. The goal of Linux App Finder is to make finding the right software an easy task by grouping programs into categories and allowing for a task based search.

Users of Debian based distros will find this site a quick reference of available deb packages for each of the programs. It will be synced regularly with the Debian and Ubuntu repositories, among others.
