I know there is a way of doing it in Cairo dock (see this Q&A), but I love the Unity Launcher and would like to keep using that. I've spent so much time working with stacks before that starting to use the dashboard to get to stuff is counterproductive for me. Is there any tweak that allows stacks (NOT QUICKLISTS) in the launcher?
PS Dean Howell suggested using the files lens, and frankly it is sort of what I am looking for, but invoking it takes long enough so that it defeats the purpose of using it in the first place. But this gave me an idea. Is it at all possible to "dock" a lens on the launcher, so that it would show the dash focused on a certain directory?
