How to: Gnome-do in Ubuntu Gutsy

If you have ever used Quicksilver on a Mac or Launchy on Windows then you have already experienced the concept that makes Gnome Do awesome. If you haven't (and are running Gnome) then give it a try.

To install Gnome Do, first add it's repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/do-core/ubuntu gutsy main

Then install it:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnome-do

You can then run it from Accesories->Gnome Do (you might also want to add it to your start up programs in your session).

Gnome Do with Inkscape

To launch something, assuming the Gnome Do window isn't already showing, press Super+Space (Windows key + Space bar) and then start typing a program name, etc and press enter. For more information on Gnome Do check out it's project site.
