[Linux] Synapse Redefines How You Interact With Ubuntu!4 min read
Synapse is a graphical launcher enabling you to start applications and also to quickly find and access relevant documents and files (by making use of the Zeitgeist engine).While I was searching for some good file managers, I came across Synapse. It has redefined how I interact with my system. Some reasons why I liked this.
1. It is lightweight and super fast when compared to dash or any other launchers I have used.
2. You can launch any app you want with just a few key strokes.
6. Once you found what you have been looking, you can press ENTER to perform default action or you can press TAB to show other actions.
7. It also keeps a track of your previous searches and you can access them with key down.
It is very intuitive. There is no need to open file manager at all. Whatever file you want, just type a few letters, you can jump to location of file or you can open file directly. So I can play whatever music I want instantly and do whatever I want.
To install it on Ubuntu 14.04, you can use this ppa.
