Xmodmap's keyboard mapping configuration.
It seemed nice, but it wasn't ready for life when I tested it.

(comes with X windows)
A basic display manager, to let the user boot into a login screen.
It gets the job done. It lacks user-switching and poweroff/suspend functionality.
XDM = X Window Display Manager
Shows window information. Comes with X.
There are several pages for it, but I have this one working:
Xtoolwait notably decreases the startup time of an X session by reducing the load on the X server and Linux.
It starts an X client in the background, waits for a window to be mapped on the root window, and then exits. It can improve performance for users who start a bunch of X clients automatically (for example, xterm, xlock, xconsole, whatever) when the X session starts.
Devil's Pie is for window matching & acting just like the KDE window actions, except heinously difficult to configure.
You probably want to try wmctrl instead.
The author has apparently abandoned the project.

Property displayer for X.
