Looking for a counterpart to ControlPlane that I run on OS X!

ControlPlane is a GUI for setting up custom actions in certain "contexts". A context could be a certain SSID, a specific USB peripheral, a running application and so on.

Does such thing exist for Ubuntu?

Found what seems to be the perfect match: Cuttlefish (thanks to OMG! Ubuntu!)

Not as refined as ControlPlane, but likely a good equivalent regardless.
