Quicklist Editor for Unity Launcher

Filed Under (Pessoal, Python, Ubuntu.com) by Laudeci Oliveira on 05-05-2011

Creating a custom launcher for unity is simple. Quicklists provide a easy and efficient way to quickly access commonly used tasks for a specific application.

The steps to create a custom launcher is easy.

  1. Right-click on your desktop and click create a launcher.
  2. Edit the .desktop file using a text editor and using this you can create static quicklist for the Unity.

After read that on askubuntu.com and play around with some custom launchers, I started a project to make it even easier.

The Quicklist Editor for Unity Launcher.

It still in the early development phase, only a 2 days work in my spare time and when my first son (born 30 days ago) allows me to!

Ursinha and I are working on this,  and we expect to release the first beta by next Monday.

You can find the project page on Launchpad:
