Automate Ubuntu With Cuttlefish
A pretty clever guy called Newton once said, “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” - the same is now true for Ubuntu with the use of Cuttlefish.
Cuttlefish allows you to create events that only happen under certain circumstances.

While Windows has a nice variety of tools to manipulate subtitles, Linux applications too can accomplish such tasks. From editing to ripping to converting, here is a list of some useful tools.
