Today's Screenshot: Cool Leopard-Flavored Dock for Ubuntu

Filed under
Software

I just came across this nice little mock-up of an application launcher for Ubuntu Linux created by Brad Jensen. It incorporates the look of Mac OS X Leopard's dock, and it adds a system navigator and search interface which pops up when you click on the system icon.

The difference between Leopard and this is Leopard's dock is for launching apps from the icons directly on the dock, this has menus in it for launching apps and keeping things sorted, and then the icons on the dock are for apps that are running. It's like all of your panels in one simple to use, good looking dock that can be set to auto-hide. and have effects for fun if one wants them.

So, the bubble/dock combo replaces the standard Ubuntu apps panels. Neat!

Here's a mock-up comment of me not caring.

Let me know when it REALLY exists and I'll replace my mock-up with the real thing.

  • Tweak Your Fedora 22 Desktop Using Fedy And PostinstallerF
    None of the Linux distributions comes with all essential applications for daily usage, Agree? You have to install additional Repositories, softwares like Chrome, Flash player, Java or something in order to get a perfect distro for the daily usage. We can do it in two methods. First, you can manually search and install all the required softwares one by one, and the second one is you can use a tool that will help you to find and install all essential applications from one place. Which method would you prefer? I prefer the second method most, not because it is easy, but also it saves some time.
