A lean application menu and launcher for Gnome.

 * * * * IMPORTANT NOTE * * * *
We are looking for developers to take over Cardapio. See the announcement below:

Cardapio can work in two modes: as a panel applet (in which case it is an alternative to Gnome's application menu applet) or as a stand-alone launcher (in which case it is an alternative to the simplest use-cases of Gnome Do). It has a beautiful gtk-native interface and includes plugins for performing inline searches of Files (via Tracker), Software Center, Google, Wikipedia, and much more!

To search for files in your computer using Cardapio, you need to install Tracker 0.8.7 or above. To install it on Ubuntu:
$ sudo apt-get install tracker

Then be sure to run the tracker preferences tool (just type "Search and Indexing" in Cardapio), change the settings to your personal preference, and restart your computer.

Afterwards, don't forget to activate the File Search plugin in Cardapio's preferences window!

Usage
===========================

To use as a panel applet, simply add it as usual:
Right-click the panel, select "Add to panel", then choose "Cardapio".

To run in other docks/panels, see:
- Docky: https://answers.launchpad.net/cardapio/+faq/1148
- AWN: https://answers.launchpad.net/cardapio/+faq/1407

To use as a launcher instead, make sure Cardapio is not used as an applet first, then run:
$ cardapio hidden

Once cardapio is running, you can access it using Super+Space. You can change this keybinding in Cardapio's Preferences.

Have fun!
