Gnome Do For Mac


Docky is among the most popular MacOS-like dock for Ubuntu complete with documentation. Gnome is a simple beat keeper for musicians. I made it because I couldn't find a usable metronome for the Mac platform. It's drummer oriented but should be usable by anyone needing to keep time. GNOME Do allows you to quickly search for many items present on your desktop or the web, and perform useful actions on those items. GNOME Do is inspired by Quicksilver & GNOME Launch Box. Download Do The Tao of Do. Don't search, Do! If you know what you're looking for, Do. 'Use this gnome 3 extension' is never the answer to work around gnome 3 problems: in my experience extensions either don't work or stop working at the first 'apt-get update' you do, or just consume like 40 gigs of memory if left running for a week.

Gnome Mac Theme

GNOME Do (often referred to as Do) is a free and open-sourceapplication launcher for Linux originally created by David Siegel,[1] and currently maintained by Alex Launi. Like other application launchers, it allows searching for applications and files, but it also allows specifying actions to perform on search results. GNOME Do allows for quick finding of miscellaneous artifacts of GNOME environment (applications, Evolution and Pidgin contacts, Firefox bookmarks, Rhythmbox artists and albums, and so on) and execute the basic actions on them (launch, open, email, chat, play, etc.).[2]


While it is designed primarily for the GNOME desktop, it works in other desktop environments, such as KDE.

GNOME Do was inspired by Quicksilver for Mac OS X, and GNOME Launch Box.[3]


GNOME Do with the Docky interface

Docky is a theme for GNOME Do that behaves much like the Mac OS X dock.[4] Unlike GNOME Do's traditional interface, Docky can be set to one of three modes for hiding:

  • None - Docky is always visible.
  • Autohide - Docky is normally hidden, and appears when the mouse pointer reaches Docky's (unseen) edge at the lower/upper edge of the screen.
  • Intellihide - Docky hides if it overlaps any window in the active window group, but it can still be brought up with the mouse pointer as described above.

Standard Do functionality is still present within Docky, and the Do hot-key will still produce the expected behavior.


Docky 2[5][6][7][8] is a separate application from GNOME Do. Integration with GNOME Do is planned for Docky 2.[9]
