Gnome Pie: new application launcher

gnome foot is an application inspired by a World of Warcraft add-on called OPie, which tries to offer a different way of run applications en Gnome.

gnome foot It consists of several "cakes", each one being triggered by a set keyboard shortcut.

Each "cake" has its own role: an application category, a media control, a multimedia application control (play / pause / next / previous), a control that allows you to control the active window (maximize, restore , close, etc.) and so on.

You can also create custom "cakes" or delete existing ones. so you have full control over what each cake does.

Installation on Ubuntu

I opened a terminal and wrote:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa: simonschneegans / testing
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnome-pie

Install in other distributions via GitHub.
