Cardapio – A lean application menu and launcher for Gnome

Sponsored Link
Cardapio can work in two modes: as a panel applet (in which case it is an alternative to Gnome's application menu applet) or as a stand-alone launcher (in which case it is an alternative to the simplest use-cases of Gnome Do). It has a beautiful gtk-native interface and includes plugins for performing inline searches of Files (via Tracker), Software Center, Google, Wikipedia, and much more!
Install Cardapio in ubuntu 10.10/10.04

Open the terminal and run the following commands

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cardapio-team/unstable
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install cardapio

  1. 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?

    Thank you.
