This is a short presentation of softwares (PC, Android) and pdf-documents made by Jan Lindström.


Excluding Pdf-files, are now the files to be downloaded from here, hosted at Koofr.net  (see links below). When you click on a link, will a list of files appear. Mark in front of one  (or more), and hit the Download-button.


The programs  are free to use, if you follow their simple licenses.



The PC-apps exists in Linux (both 32- and 64-bits), and Windows (32-bits)- versions. 32-bits will normaly work on 64-systems (on Linux with possible more files to install). The opposite will never. My software-packages includes for Linux, both types, so you may just chose one of them. Distribution exists as compressed zip- or tar.gz archives. The softwares need no installation, and have small demands on the systems. The Windows-versions can be run on other platforms (Linux, Mac OS X, BSD and Solaris), with the help of Wine.




Some programs exists also as  Android-apps. For now are they not published (uploaded to a market). Be absolute certain of what this means. You can without problem find information about sideloading, unknown sources and independent app stores, on the net.  From Android 8.0 is it possible to install single apps with sideloading, in a better way. If you lack the proper knowledge, and/or trust  to these apps, use the PC-versions instead (if possible).

The apps have no possession to the rest of your system. They will not connect to the internet. Should work with Android >=4.1.
