GNOME Do

GNOME Do

GNOME Do allows you to quickly search for many items present in your GNOME desktop environment. These include applications, Evolution contacts, Firefox bookmarks, files, artists and albums in Rhythmbox, Pidgin buddies, etc.), as well as letting you perform commonly used actions on those items (Run, Open, Email, Chat, Play, etc.).  

Press Super+Spave (Windows+Space) brings up a dialog, at which point anyting can be typed. In the screenshot to the left, typing ev has brought up the Evolution icon. GNOME Do's pop-up window has two panes: the left pane displays the matches for what you type on the keyboard, and the right displays the action that will happen when you press Enter.

GNOME Do is plugin based, allowing it to be easily extended to handle new items and actions.  This package contains a core set of items and actions.

Although GNOME Do primarily targets the GNOME desktop, it also works under other desktop environments. If you prefer the KDE Desktop Environment, you may wish to try out Katapult.
