I am a new Ubuntu 14.04 user, transitioning from Linux Mint 17.3. In Mint, I depended on an ultra-simple file launcher - directory navigator applet for Cinnamon, entitled "Places Center."
I assumed that I'd easily find an equivalent in Ubuntu, but have looked and looked, to no avail! The Main Menu app will let me add programs to Classic Menu Indicator, but that's not really what I'm after. All I want is a simple tree to click open frequently-used word processor files, to navigate to frequently-accessed directories and so forth.
If anyone can recommend one, I'll be grateful.
