GNOME Launch Box – QuickSilver for Linux

Gnome Launch Box, an application which is very similar to Quicksilver for Mac OSX, has recieved support for the X server Composite extension. This results in eye-candy in the form of rounded edges and real translucency, making it closer to its OSX “brother”. I definitely suggest that you try it for your self, the screenshots do not fully express how amazing this application looks, and in my opinion it now feels closer to Quicksilver..


It is in the ubuntu repos. so ppl who’d wanna try out can type this to install:

sudo apt-get install gnome-launch-box

after installation you may run it by pressing alt+f2 to bring the run dialog box and typing:

gnome-launch-box

If you want it to startup everytime you logon then add the entry is system > prefs > sessions. in the startup programs page click “NEW” button. type anything in the ‘Name’ field and in the ‘Command’ field type:

gnome-launch-box
