What's new in Cardapio 0.9.132:

  • Cardapio v0.9.132 has been released* and it now brings a mouse-based interface for browsing the System menus. This was a commonly asked-for feature, and its design came directly from our discussion in a Launchpad blueprint [1]. How does it work? See the blueprint
  • ...or just toggle the new mode-switcher button (labeled "System"), which is present at the bottom of the menu, and see Cardapio become a Gnome Control Center of sorts. Good times!

Cardapio is a software, a menu that 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 features a beautiful gtk-native interface, and includes plugins for performing inline Tracker and Google searches.


In Ubuntu, run the following commands on your terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cardapio-team/unstable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cardapio

In other distributions:

bzr clone lp:cardapio
cd cardapio
sudo make install
cd ..
sudo rm -rf cardapio

Note that Cardapio's Tracker plugin requires Tracker 0.9 or above. To install it on Ubuntu, use the commands below:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tracker-team/tracker-unstable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tracker


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

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 through Cardapio's Preferences window.

Have fun!
