Why should we install leafpad when we have pluma (default MATE graphical text editor)?

I think keepass2 is better as it is cross plataform :)

I don't know what you're talking about, KeePassX is cross-platform. Also, KeePass2 is written in C# (i.e. needs Mono).

Is only it was my mistake KeepassX is multi plataform.

I couldn't find a package named stickynotes. Would you please write the exact name of the package?

I believe he's referring to this -> https://launchpad.net/indicator-stickynotes

But the software you mentioned is not available in Debian or Ubuntu repositories!

Maybe it would be the right time for Trisquel to have its own repository, woulnd't it? After all, the amount of donations that Trisquel gets every year covers the servers we're using and there's still more money to expend.

Trisquel has had its own repositories for many years (since "the beginning"?). The package not being in the upstream distro means the whole packaging work has to be done from scratch though.

-Seahorse for GPG keys
-Xarchiver or Squeeze, Caja didn't seem to handle archives.

I mentioned Deja-Dup above but an alternative should be envisaged due to the fact that Deja-Dup is barely maintained :
I'm the sole maintainer and I don't really spend a lot of time on it, no. I try to fix critical issues, but don't have much time myself. As is evidenced by the release dates. :-/

"Back in Time" seems to be a good alternative.

I trust the default accesories on MATE for search, graphical text editor, and file manager to be good enough. Besides, I am told that Caja offers dual panel by pressing F3 (as opposed to Nautilus which unexplicably is missing this feature on spite of having had it in the past), and that's all that I need.
-A Backup tool.
-A Compression tool: the default Archive manager has been OK for me so far.
-Accesibility tools. I suppose Onboard and Orca are OK.
-Emacs, because why not.
-Net Tool, of course.

Some PDF tools: Evince, qpdfview or Okular, Pdf Chain or Pdf Shuffler, cups-pdf

May be Scribus

I already mentioned Evince, Okular and Cups in the Office section. Agree on Pfd Shuffler, and like Scribus too though get too idea it is of big size and don't know how widely it is used.

Atril, the mate document viewer, works very well. I think it's logical to use the default mate applications, since they offer good environment integration, same gtk version, etc.
