KMidimon monitors events coming from a MIDI external port or application via the ALSA sequencer, or Standard MIDI Files. It is especially useful if you want to debug MIDI software or your MIDI setup. It features a nice graphical user interface, customizable event filters and sequencer parameters, support for all MIDI messages and some ALSA messages, MIDI playback, and saving the recorded event list to a text file or SMF.
synaptiks is a KDE touchpad tool consisting of a system settings module for touchpad configuration and a tray application for touchpad management. The system settings module allows you to configure basic as well as advanced touchpad settings. The tray application can switch your touchpad on or off, either manually using a global shortcut, or automatically, if external mice are plugged or while the keyboard is active.
mod-icon-geom is a command line utility that allows the user to set the KDE 4 desktop icon's height and width. It creates a configuration file by using the -c option along with default height (-h) and default width (-w) option settings. It modifies the geometry for each desktop icon found in .kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc to make the icons have the desired height and width. After the configuration file is generated, the user can modify that file to have height and width values for individual icons that are different than the default (useful if the icon text is larger than the default width allows), and the true values in the appletsrc file can be saved back to the configuration file with the -s option. This utility saves time and energy by giving the user an additional level of control over desktop icons that was lost in KDe 4.
KMid2 plays MIDI and karaoke files to hardware MIDI devices or software synthesizers. It supports playlists, MIDI mappers, tempo (speed) control, volume and pitch (transpose) controls, and configurable character encoding, font, and color for lyrics. The graphic views include a rhythm view (visual metronome), a channels window with solo/muting controls and instrument selectors, and a piano player window (pianola).
Hebe is a KDE 4.4 front-end GUI for the Hercules z/Arch emulator. It was designed to have a modern look, like the VirtualBox interface; there are no dials. Hebe provides two consoles, one for Hercules and one for the SCP (system control program), also known as the operating system. Input is automatically routed to the correct receiver. You can start as many instances of Hercules as your hardware can support. Hebe works best with Hercules 3.0.7.
SerLooK is a KDE application for inspecting data going over serial lines. It can work as a binary terminal that sends and receives data through a defined port (Point to Point mode) and displays them on separate views. Each view can be configured to display data in hexadecimal, decimal, octal, binary, and raw ASCII. It is also possible to perform I/O through terminal emulation views and define a secondary port and monitor the traffic between two external hosts using a "Y" cable (Snooper mode).
