Yes, you can

By default quickly uses pyGOBJECT for creating applications, It is a cross platform so you can use these apps in other linux distros. But you may need to make tiny changes in the code because there are some ubuntu specifc features like application indicator which is not available in other distros.

  • Can you show me (e.g. a link for tutorial) how to adapt app indicator in other distro?
