Cardapio in action
I replaced the standard Ubuntu menu with Cardapio weeks ago and I’m a happy camper ever since. Best piece: Super+Space opens it with the search box in focus. Makes it superfast to find places, apps or web results
I have installed Cardapio in Ubuntu 11.10 and it does not appear in the list of applications when I right click on the panel to add it as a launcher, but that is ok, I can create a customized launcher or have it load with the system.
What is bothering me, is that I do not see any options like you talk about. What I really would like to do is sort the menu my own way, rearrange them by categories, etc. Is that possible?
