Ubuntu – Using Docky as launcher

docky

I was using Gnome Do in Natty, with Docky as launcher.

Now I see that Docky and Gnome-Do have separated, and I wonder: is it possible to use Docky as launcher? Is there a way to summon docky with a key combination and then start typing the name of an application and have Docky guess it and open it for you?

Thanks!

I recommend to install Synapse. It works like you know it from Docky. I switched from Docky/Gnome-Do to Synapse because of its high performance. Just run

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:synapse-core/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install synapse
