Ubuntu – How to start a second instance of a program from Unity’s launcher


It's all in the title.

Eg. if I have a gnome-terminal opened and I click on the gnome-terminal launcher icon, the running terminal will focus and no new instance will pop-up. Also, there is no item in the launcher icon's quicklist that would allow me to start a second instance of the program.

Best Answer

You now can start a new instance via a middle clicking on the launcher icon.
