ClaSS is a working, useable version of what is to be a complete
classroom information assistant.
You are referred to the ClaSS home-page http://www.laex.org/class/ for
more information and documentation. Please email email@example.com with
questions, requests for support, installation help etc. You can also
use the integrated suppoprt forms in the AboutBook to post queries
to the development team from inside ClaSS.
Look at the README in the subdiretory class/install for instructions
to guide you through the installation procedure.
If you already have an install of ClaSS runnning then you'll need to
migrate your database across by applying the appropriate sql-patch
scripts in the install directory (if any are more recent than your
Please do let firstname.lastname@example.org know if you find this software useful (or
not useful!). All feedback is valued and will help speed the
development of ClaSS.

This package has to be installed in the teacher pc and the students workstations. When using LTSP this package must not be installed inside the clients chroot.
Check the documentation for detailed instructions to set it up.
The Get Ready for Open Source: SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (Book 1) course (6200) is targeted at an intermediate school level (ages 10-14), introducing students to the fundamental skills of using the SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop software. It is the first in a series of courses focused on preparing students to take part in a Linux open source development project.
The Get Ready for Open Source: SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (Book 2) course (6201) is targeted at a high school level (ages 14 and above), and provides students with an short introduction to desktop administrative tasks with the main focus on understanding the shell and the first steps in shell programming. It is the second in a series of courses focused on preparing students to take part in a Linux open source development project.

or an external conversion program.
Currently, it has support for Belarussian, Czech, Polish, Russian, Slovak,
Ukrainian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Estonian, Hungarian, Latvian, Lithuanian,
Slovene and some multibyte encodings (mostly variants of Unicode) independent
Install Enca if you need to cope with text files of dubious origin
and unknown encoding and convert them to some reasonable encoding.
The Euler Mathematical Toolbox is an open software for numerical and symbolic
computations written and maintained by R. Grothmann, professor for mathematics
at the University of Eichstätt.
This is the GTK+ port of euler, a program for quicly and interactively
computing with real and complex numbers and matrices. It features advanced
graphics capabilities and a simple programming language.
eXe, the eLearning XHTML editor, is an authoring environment which enables
teachers to publish web content in standard package formats (like IMS
Content Packages and SCORM) without the need to become proficient in HTML

FET is open source free software for automatically scheduling the timetable of a school, high-school or university. It uses a fast and efficient timetabling algorithm. It is licensed under GNU/GPL.
The problems are setting adding elements from the palette to chalkboard, and writing the data of each element. The elements are objects as Blocks, Pulleys, Mobiles, Forces, ... . Use the SI and English systems, scientific notation and many conversion factors. The problems that can be solved with FísicaLab 0.1, are:
* Kinematics of particles (doesn't include circular motion).
* Static of particles in 2D.
* Dynamic of particles in 2D (doesn't include dynamic of circular motion).
The static and dynamic problems are entered constructing the free body diagrams of the objects. Although FísicaLab is easy and intuitive, we recommend you read the help files first before set any problem. You can access these files in the option menu Info -> Help.
The Free Pascal Compiler is a Turbo Pascal 7.0 and Delphi compatible 32/64bit
Pascal Compiler. It comes with fully TP 7.0 compatible run-time library.
Some extensions are added to the language, like function overloading. Shared
libraries can be linked. Basic Delphi support is already implemented (classes,
exceptions,ansistrings,RTTI). This package contains commandline compiler and
utils. Provided units are the runtime library (RTL), free component library
(FCL), gtk, ncurses, zlib, mysql, postgres, ibase bindings.
This package contains precompiled units for different hardware architectures.
This package aggregates the needed packages for initial building fpc
Fraqtive is a program for drawing Mandelbrot and Julia fractals.
It uses a very fast algorithm and generates high quality, smooth images.
It is fully interactive, allowing for real-time mouse navigation and
dynamic generation of the Julia fractal preview.
OpenGL-rendered 3D view of the fractals is also supported.
Gambas is a free development environment based on a Basic interpreter
with object extensions, like Visual Basic(tm) (but it is NOT a clone!).
With Gambas, you can quickly design your program GUI, access MySQL or
PostgreSQL databases, control KDE applications with DCOP, translate
your program into many languages, create network applications easily,
build RPMs of your apps automatically, and so on... You have to install
the necessary components
Gambas is still in development, but already useful for smaller projects.
The IDE itself is written in Gambas-BASIC. The source can be used reviewed
as an example application in the /usr/share/gambas/examples directory.
Documentation is also in that directory.
