View Full Version : [kubuntu] instant search and program launcher

October 14th, 2009, 09:02 PM
When using GNOME, I loved GNOME-Do. It's really a great program. I tried running it in KDE, but there are bugs in the output such as the results window displaying over the main options; also a semi-transparent box forms behind the main window that really doesn't look good. Is there a program launcher as good as GNOME-Do for KDE? I tried installing Katapult but it hasn't updated in a while, and I couldn't fulfill all of its dependencies from a command-line install (something about missing X11 headers).

Also, KDE is supposed to incorporate instant desktop search into its Kickoff program launcher via strigi, but I can't figure out how to set that up, since it's not set up by default.
