A launcher thats a fusion of the Ubuntu dash, the Gnome-shell overview and the classic Gnome 2 menu which replaces the overview. Recommend for use with a dock.
Bolt can be easily configured through http://extensions.gnome.org or via the semi-transparent square to the left of the search box.
- Zeitgeist >= 0.9.0
- gir1.2-gnomedesktop-3.0 (for icon previews)
- Ubuntu font (only when current gnome-shell theme doesnt support bolt)
- After disabling bolt and viewing the overview gnome-shell sometimes crashes
Bolt can be themed just like any other part of Gnome-shell. When a Gnome-shell theme doesnt include support for Bolt a default is applied as seen above. Details on how to add theming support can be found here and you can find themes where I've added support here.
Will focus on supporting workspaces.
