Quicklist Editor for Unity Launcher

Sponsored Link
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.

Right-click on your desktop and click create a launcher.

Edit the .desktop file using a text editor and using this you can create static quicklist for the Unity.

We have an application to do this which is called Quicklist Editor

Install quicklist editor on ubuntu 11.04

Open the terminal and run the following commands

sudo apt-get install bzr

bzr branch lp:unity-launcher-editor

After installation you need to double click on main.py file located under

/home/username/unity-launcher-editor/unitylaunchereditor/main.py

  1. I installed the quicklist editor but in the /home/username/unity-launcher-editor/unitylaunchereditor/main.py, the main.py is missing, i got mainwindow.py and other files

  2. Same here: main.py is missing. Try running “ule” file in your unity-launcher-editor directory. Works for me.

  3. main.py is missing. “ule” launches the app but it is not functional. Buttons don’t do anything and it keeps generating errors in the console. Here are some of them:

  4. this might work in the latest version, after they left out that .py file

    sudo apt-get install bzr
    bzr branch lp:unity-launcher-editor
    cd unity-launcher-editor/
    ./ule
