Is there any tool similar to Deskbar available for Ubuntu 12.10?
Using Unity, the file lens does the job, but I can't work with Unity, so I have to use another desktop environment (fallback version/xfce).
The workflow that I need is the typical deskbar one, ie., for opening a random file: - using a keyboard shortcut globally available - typing the first letters of the name - having the default file already selected and executable with just enter - having the other files selectable just with a simple arrow selection (and then just enter)
I've tried catfish, but it's relatively slow, and in order to find the files I have to click each time on "deep search". I can't find beagle or tracker either.
What can I do?
