Faster Ubuntu Part 1: Gnome-Do

I want to write a little series about how I use Ubuntu and what I got used to speed up my work with Ubuntu. This article is written for people who have just migrated to Ubuntu or Linux and as well for more experienced users. These series is based on my personal experience. The first episode will be about Gnome-Do. Gnome-Do speeds up my work like no second application. At most, the command line is as useful for me.

Install It

First you have to install Gnome-Do. First you have to add ## gnome-do deb hardy main deb-src hardy main to your "/etc/apt/sources.list". After that you type in the commandline: sudo aptitude update sudo aptitude install gnome-do gnome-do-plugins

Use It

To open the folder "Businessplan" (screenshot) on my computer I just have to press WIN+Space, type "bus" and then hit Enter. Boom, the folder opens immediately. The same way you can start programs, twitter, create Tomboy-Notes and much more. Best you add Gnome-Do to your autostart today. Discover the opportunities and rock Ubuntu today.
