I don't really use all that much stuff, but

Editor: vim/Emacs
Typesetting: Emacs w/ Auctex
Browser: Firefox w/ Hit-a-Hint
Window Manager: Ratpoison
Numerical math: Octave
My personal favourite: Asymptote (http://asymptote.sourceforge.net/ ) - awesome for producing figures in LaTeX documents

Asymptote? Looks like you are a programmer indeed.

well i got just started on my own vl pingutop just recently....so i'll write about the few apps that i use for day-to-day stuff.

JuK for songs
VLC n Xine for videos...majorly VLC
openoffice impress to read lecture slides
firefox for browsing
armagetron advanced...but i like savin some flash games on to disk n play em offline
vim....to do occassional configuration messups of scripts in etc., wonder at the colors of c codes that i take inspiration from n read RFC's
for editing code myself, i prefer kwrite
...to the person sayin latex for typesetting. did you build latex from source or do you have a binary package...the latex site has quite an attitude problem...hopin it comes pre-installed with your distro or with some random tex package...i installed tetex but kile can't find latex. :(
well there are a lot of other small applets that i use n what else... oh
su .... its an app ain't it. i use it quite a lot...like ubuntu guys would be using sudo all the time
vcpufreq: i like my cpu runnin cooler
mcedit...the safer way to edit when u dont know that typin 3dworld in escape mode of vim is dangerous for existence of the characters on screen.
slapt-get .... favorite way to install...although i know the binary package is not always optimized for my architecture.
etc.

Hey Preacher,

Hanumizzle has packaged (and is apparently repackaging) TexLive, which is the successor to TeTeX.  It worked fine for me.

I did repackage texlive and the docs to eliminate the earlier flub.

latex2html will still need to be redone. Time to nuke Battle for Wesnoth off my disk!!
