Unity Launcher Folders – Group your apps, folders, shortcuts in Ubuntu

1 min

A new package launched that helps you organise your apps, folders etc, in Unity.

This project has been discontinued. The app’s homepage doesn’t exist anymore. However, the source is present in LaunchPad.

Named “LauncherFolders”, the Debian package helps you to organise your Unity shortcuts, files, folders, and apps in customised groupings. It gives you a drawer to put your stuff into. It supports almost anything like – Web links (You can drag them from Firefox/Chrome!!), Apps, Shell Script files, Files, Folders, Links etc. Once grouped, it generates an icon appropriate to the items you have put into the drawer.

How to install

a) Download the Debian package from here.

b) Install using dpkg or Open with the Software Centre to install by clicking the downloaded *.deb file.

c) Search the launcher folder from Dash and launch.

For a detailed look at how it works, have a look at this video:
