Currently my assortment of apps are:
Luakit for web
mpd + ncpmcpp for music
mplayer2 for video (no gui)
ranger file manager
feh for photo viewing and background setting
i3 window manager with dmenu and conky for my status
centerim for instant messenger (although might be replaced)
irssi for irc
rtorrent for torrent
urxvt for terminal.
geany for text editing/ide
I'm looking for suggestions on other lightweight, fully functional apps that I can possibly use, specifically i'm looking for a text editor with syntax highlighting.
my end goal is to have my laptop run as effeciantly as possible basically meaning using the least ammount of resources while allowing for maximum performance output.
