 20 Aplikasi Linux Terbaik Yang Pernah Ada



Linux tampaknya semakin populer setiap tahun. Berkat distro ramah pengguna yang didukung dengan baik seperti Ubuntu, banyak orang mengambil risiko dan menyadari bahwa sistem operasi Open Source dan gratis ini adalah alternatif yang layak untuk Windows dan macOS.


Namun, tidak ada komputer yang berguna tanpa aplikasi yang sebenarnya untuk menyelesaikan pekerjaan Anda. Ini bisa menjadi masalah bagi pengguna Linux baru, karena banyak aplikasi yang sudah dikenal tidak tersedia dalam bentuk Linux.

Daftar isi


Kami telah mengumpulkan contoh aplikasi Linux terbaik untuk kategori kasus penggunaan umum untuk membantu Anda memulai. Jika memungkinkan, kami telah mencoba untuk mendukung perangkat lunak Open Source, tetapi beberapa aplikasi di sini adalah hak milik.


Aplikasi Pengeditan Foto Terbaik: GIMP


Adobe Photoshop secara luas dianggap sebagai standar industri dalam hal pengeditan foto. Lagi pula, orang menyebut manipulasi foto sebagai "photoshopping". Photoshop tersedia di Windows dan Mac. Faktanya, bahkan ada versi iPad asli sekarang.


Namun, tidak ada versi Linux asli dari aplikasi populer ini. Meskipun Photoshop dapat digunakan melalui mesin virtual atau WINE, tetapi itu tidak akan berjalan secara optimal. Lebih buruk lagi, Anda harus mendaftar untuk berlangganan 12 bulan untuk menggunakan aplikasi.


Untungnya Linux memiliki GIMP. Sebuah alternatif yang kuat, gratis dan open source untuk Photoshop. GIMP telah ada selama beberapa dekade dan, meskipun kurva pembelajarannya berbeda dengan Photoshop, menawarkan sebagian besar fitur terpenting yang Anda dapatkan dari Adobe. Pengguna GIMP yang terampil dapat mencapai hasil yang sama seperti seseorang yang mengetahui Photoshop, tetapi tanpa semua beban yang berasal dari aplikasi berbasis langganan yang dipatenkan.


Aplikasi Seni Digital Terbaik: Inkscape


Perangkat lunak menggambar grafik vektor bisa sangat mahal, tetapi jika Anda bersedia menerima beberapa sisi kasar, maka Inkscape akan memberi Anda semua alat yang Anda butuhkan tanpa biaya sepeser pun.


Tentu saja, bagian bakat artistik dari persamaan terserah Anda, tetapi jika Anda memiliki kemampuan menggambar, Inkscape dapat membantu mewujudkan visi Anda. Itu memang memiliki beberapa batasan dalam hal dukungan format file, tetapi secara keseluruhan Anda seharusnya tidak memiliki masalah berbagi kreasi Anda dengan klien dan artis lain.


Aplikasi Game Terbaik: Steam untuk Linux


Bermain game di Linux selalu menjadi urusan yang loyo. Bahkan ketika judul AAA memiliki versi Linux, menginstal dan mengonfigurasinya adalah kebalikan dari kesenangan. Tampilan depan aplikasi modern di Ubuntu dan versi Linux desktop lainnya dapat membantu, tetapi masih tidak semulus yang seharusnya.

Yang membawa kita ke Steam. Ini adalah aplikasi klien dari Valve Corporation, yang memiliki dan mengoperasikan toko digital PC terbesar di dunia.


Anda tidak hanya dapat membeli game Linux asli melalui Steam, Anda juga dapat memainkan banyak game Windows yang telah disertifikasi untuk bekerja melalui implementasi khusus WINE. Dikenal sebagai "Steam Play", ini telah menjadi pengubah permainan literal untuk bermain game di mesin Linux.


Suite Office Terbaik: LibreOffice


Dicintai oleh mahasiswa hemat, pekerja dan pecinta perangkat lunak Open Source di seluruh dunia, LibreOffice adalah alternatif definitif untuk raksasa yaitu Microsoft Office. Ini termasuk pengolah kata, aplikasi spreadsheet, aplikasi presentasi dan solusi database.


Libreoffice akan terasa cukup akrab bagi mereka yang bekerja dengan Microsoft office di tahun 2000-an, sebelum desain ulang antarmuka yang radikal. Secara fungsional sebagian besar pengguna akan menemukan semua yang mereka butuhkan di Libreoffice, meskipun fungsi tersebut mungkin berada di tempat yang tidak Anda harapkan.


Tentu saja ada banyak alternatif hebat untuk Microsoft Office, Anda dapat melihat kumpulan yang terbaik dari kami di sini.


Aplikasi Penerbitan Desktop Terbaik: Scribus


Penerbitan desktop (DTP) telah mengalami sedikit kebangkitan selama beberapa tahun terakhir. Dengan meningkatnya popularitas eBook, eReader, komputer tablet, dan stand-in digital lainnya untuk kertas, menjadi sangat relevan lagi untuk melakukan tata letak halaman yang cerdas dan interior buku yang indah.


Ini juga lebih mudah dari sebelumnya untuk menerbitkan sendiri dan jika Anda memiliki akses ke program penerbitan desktop khusus, maka Anda dapat membuatnya terlihat seperti real deal dari kenyamanan komputer Anda sendiri.


Di situlah Scribus muncul. Program yang luar biasa ini dimulai sebagai program Python sederhana dan sekarang telah berkembang menjadi program DTP yang serius. Jika Anda ingin tahu apa yang dapat dilakukan Scribus, lihat saja daftar publikasi “Made by Scribus” ini. Ini adalah masalah nyata dan penulis artikel ini sebenarnya telah merancang dan menerbitkan panduan komputer teknis menggunakan program ini.


Mengingat biaya perangkat lunak DTP profesional, Scribus tentu saja dianggap sebagai salah satu aplikasi Linux terbaik sepanjang masa.


Klien Email Terbaik: Thunderbird


Dengan popularitas layanan email berbasis web, seperti Gmail, tidak banyak pengguna utama yang benar-benar membutuhkan klien email desktop. Namun, jika Anda perlu menggunakan akun email kantor atau server email pribadi, masih masuk akal untuk memiliki perangkat lunak klien.


Hal yang sama berlaku jika Anda perlu menggunakan penyesuaian lanjutan atau harus menyimpan semua email Anda secara offline. Apa pun alasan Anda membutuhkan klien email, pengguna Linux pasti harus memberi kesempatan kepada Mozilla Thunderbird. Ini juga didukung pada Windows dan Mac, yang dapat bermanfaat jika Anda perlu menggunakan beberapa platform dan menginginkan konsistensi.


Thunderbird telah menjadi agak lama, tetapi pada awal 2019 Mozilla berkomitmen untuk memodernisasi Thunderbird dengan dukungan Gmail, perombakan antarmuka, dan enkripsi yang ramah pengguna. Meskipun berdiri, ini masih yang paling didukung dan salah satu aplikasi Linux klien email terlengkap.

Best Screen Recorder and Streamer: Open Broadcaster Software


There’s a long list of reasons to record your screen. You want to create a tutorial, document a bug or livestream something to an audience. Open Broadcast Software has been the package of choice for these use cases across multiple platforms for years.


The interface is a little spartan and there is a bit of a learning curve, but OBS is easy to use once you know how. It also offers some neat advanced features, chief of which is the ability to easily create a recording that mixes together multiple video sources. For example, you can record your desktop and your webcam feed at the same time. Easily arranging the elements that will end up in the final product.


Since OBS is so popular, it’s supported by every streaming service that matters and it has development sponsorship from real industry heavyweights as well, so it’s a pretty safe bet to jump on the OBS bandwagon, without worrying that you’ll have to switch to anything else in the future.


Best Media Player: VLC


These days most people simply consume their video media via streaming services such as YouTube, Netflix and Apple TV+. However, before broadband was so widespread, we often had to get our digital media as discrete files from various sources.


The range of encoders and formats made it a hard gamble whether a given video would even play on your computer. Then we were blessed with VLC player, which seems almost entirely unflappable in the face of whatever media format you throw at it.


If you still have your own digital or physical media and want to play it on a Linux computer, VLC is one of the best Linux apps to have installed.


Best Video Editor: DaVinci Resolve


It’s mind-boggling that you can get a Hollywood-grade video editor like DaVinci Resolve for free, but it’s true! The free version does have some minor limitations compared to the $300 DaVinci Resolve Studio, but for 99% of users this is going to be a fantastic video editor, that also includes a robust compositor and audio processing package by default.


If you have the right version of Linux (such as CentOS) you can also build an absolutely monstrous multi-core, multi-GPU video rendering workstation. DaVinci also sells a catalogue full of amazing video editing hardware and camera equipment that work perfectly with Resolve, so if you have an eye on moving into the video production big leagues, DaVinci can stay with you all the way.


If this pro-grade solution is a little intimidating, you should also give OpenShot a look.


Best Work Messaging App: Slack for Linux


Slack is, despite the name, one of the most popular messaging apps in the world for groups of people to do productive work together. There are entire organizations that run off Slack as the glue that binds them together and since so many developers work in a Linux environment, you can be sure there’s a robust version of the app there as well.


Slack is not an Open Source application and relies on an online service to work, but unless you work alone, it’s almost certainly going to be an essential part of any Linux workstation.


Best BitTorrent App: uTorrent for Linux


Many people will of course say that Transmission is their Torrent client of choice, but there’s a reason uTorrent has become the de facto standard when it comes to Bittorrent software on any platform. It’s fast, very lightweight and incredibly simple to use.


Yes, it may be considered the “vanilla” choice these days, but it’s easy to forget that uTorrent is the standard by which others are measured. Using it is like putting on a well-loved pair of socks. It just feels good. The version in the Ubuntu store runs using WINE, but still works just fine.


Best Web Browser: Mozilla FireFox


While Chrome has certainly become the browser of choice for most people, Mozilla Firefox has a few distinct advantages on Linux. For one thing, it’s actually an Open Source application. Chromium, which Chrome is based on, is also Open Source, but Google Chrome is not.


FireFox has more than kept up with Chrome when it comes to modern browsing features and comes with far fewer privacy concerns. If you don’t like the idea of Google having their fingers in everything you do online, moving away from Chrome is an important first step in keeping your online activity safe.


Best Audio App: Audacity


If you’ve worked in audio engineering for any length of time, there’s a good chance you’ve already heard of Audacity before. It’s a powerful multi-track audio recording applications with a robust set of plugins and tools to manipulate that audio once recorded.


Audacity is simple enough for anyone to use when it comes to simple recordings, but it can be used for professional content creation as well. You can record music using the multi-track feature or create a slick podcast, with background music and crisply edited dialogue.


Audacity also has a great set of touchup tools, so you can remove unwanted noise, change the sound properties of a clip and work all the other common magic audio engineers get up to. Of course, you need to know what everything does and how it works, but that’s nothing serious time watching YouTube tutorials won’t fix.


Best Music Player: Clementine


VLC will do a decent job as a music player, but if you’re serious about your locally-stored library of music on a Linux machine, then Clementine is the only game in town.


It’s lightweight, fast and very user-friendly. You’ll have your music library organized in no time flat and spend more time jamming out than squinting at a giant random playlist.


Best Virtual Machine App: VirtualBox


Virtual machine technology has come along in leaps and bounds over the last few years. Most modern CPUs can run virtual machines with little performance penalty and it allows you to access multiple operating systems on the same machine without the need to partition the drive or reboot the system.


Virtual machines are also pretty handy for privacy and cybersecurity purposes and, of course, to let you run applications not designed for the host operating system.


Luckily, Linux users have access to one of the best virtual machine applications on any platform. VirtualBox is simple to use and widely compatible with many different operating systems as a host. Which means you can run Windows, other Linux distributions, and much more, within a window on your Linux desktop.


Best Backup App: Timeshift


User-friendly backup solutions are pretty rare on Linux, but if you have a Debian system (such as Ubuntu), you can use a Linux app called Timeshift to make incremental backups much the same as Time Machine on macOS does.


It’s free and open source, although it does require a manual install. Once you get it on your system, it has a friendly graphical interface and is a doddle to set up. In the unlikely event that your Linux system suffers a catastrophic failure, you’ll be grateful that you have Timeshift.


Best Partition App: Gparted


Hard drive partition management is something that Windows users hardly ever have to worry about, but Linux users often have to tweak the partition structures of their hard drives. If that’s something you end up having to do, the best app with which to do it is Gparted.


The latest version of Gparted has a clear and simple graphical interface, so you have no trouble understanding the current layout of your drives. You can easily delete, resize and create partitions, with only a small chance you’ll do irrevocable damage to your system. It’s certainly much easier to use than the command line.


Best Cloud Storage App: DropBox for Linux


There’s not too much to say about DropBox for Linux. It’s the same basic client for the DropBox service you get on other platforms. Which is to say it integrates nicely with your local file system and just works.


You can sign up for a free account that includes a few gigabytes of storage, so there’s no reason not to give this one a go.


Best Instant Messaging App: Pidgin


Pidgin is a super-versatile instant messaging app that lets you plug in a long list of customizations and use many different IM services. It’s completely free, small to download and doesn’t use up a noticeable amount of system resources.


Sadly, it doesn’t have Skype or proper VOIP support, but if you want to happily chat via text, it’s an essential download.


Best Linux Antivirus App: ClamAV With ClamTk Frontend


Like macOS, Linux doesn’t have much of a virus problem. This is largely because it has such a relatively small user base, so the naughty people who write malware don’t have much incentive to target these niche systems.


That doesn’t mean however that there are no Linux viruses, as some people wrongly believe. But when it comes to available antivirus choices for Linux users, the selection is rather limited.


ClamAV is an Open Source Linux antivirus application which can deal with the small number of Linux viruses that are out in the wild. By itself, ClamAV only offers a text-based command line interface. So you need to add the ClamTk graphical frontend for a more palatable experience.


It’s not an essential application for the vast majority of Linux users, but if you run a mission-critical machine that’s vulnerable, give it a look.


Linux Has the Best Apps!


Never let it be said that Linux doesn’t have the right applications for just about any use case. We haven’t even scraped the surface with these common types of software. There’s a wealth of scientific, creative and relatively niche software packages for the operating system, often for the princely sum of zero.
