Duck Launcher is an application launcher and a dock made for linux. It's supposed to be beautiful while being useful. With the Duck Launcher, all your basic needs are pleased in one place: -Launch your apps
You can access your favorite apps easily on the dock, or you can find all your apps simply by clicking on the top icon. -Browse your files
[Work in progress] You will be able to access your files easily, without having to open the file manager each time. -Star
"Star" is kind of an extension of the file browser and the app launcher: you can choose any application, file or folder and add it. But these can be separated in blocks. Let's say you're a graphic artist, then you'll add a block named "Graphics" and add a few apps, like blender and gimp, and a folder where you store your files, and perhaps a file your working on right know. -Plugins
With plugins, the searching experience pushes its limits. Whereas just searching for apps, you could potentially search for anything, be it from a web service or from some local media. You just need a plugin for what you want to search. Due to the flexibility of the plugin system (as it uses web languages for the user interface), a plugin could even be a simple application.
-Customize Duck Launcher
With the duck settings, you can customize a lot of things, like your dock apps, the launcher's color, etc... -Screenshots
