Deskbar replacement?

Post by Temporary Saint »

Anyone know of a replacement for the Deskbar panel applet in Cinnamon? Gnome-do is available but I prefer not to use Mono.

How about avant window navigator?
Note that it isn't a full replacement, since you need to keep the original Cinnamon panel (hidden if you wish) to accommodate the notification tray (because that AWN applet doesn't work on Cinnamon).

I used AWN before Cinnamon, but that's not what Deskbar is. Deskbar was a Gnome applet that searched your menus, commands, files, a dictionary, and several other sources (internet included) all at the same time. It was very fast too. A nifty little lightweight applet.

Gnome Do, on the other hand, is way too big.

Hi folks.

I'm gonna resurrect this post to see if anyone has found a decent replacement for Deskbar. I really miss it. I'm considering moving from Cinnamon to XFCE (noticeable performance increase!) and I was seeing if I could get everything the way I want it when I remembered Deskbar. Catfish is fine for file searching, but Deskbar incorporated so much more.
