Drawers, an application that lets you create drawers ("stacks") on the Unity Launcher for quick access (or just to unclutter / better organize the Unity Launcher) to various app shortcuts, files, links and so on, has been updated today with a much requested feature: AppMenu Drawers.
AppMenu Drawers is a new type of drawer which tries to imitate the old GNOME2-style menu, displaying applications grouped by category. These types of drawers can be created for any level of menu hierarchy and the subcategories can easily be accessed via quicklists:
Other changes in the latest Drawers 13.3.1 include:
- icons can now be up to 128px;
- drawer color updates with wallpaper changes.
Drawers comes with many useful features, allowing you to add any kind of file types, links and so on to a drawer and it also supports "active drawers" in which the content of a folder is added to a drawer and is constantly monitored for changes so when you add files to that folder, the drawer is updated automatically.
To install Drawers in Ubuntu, use the following commands in a terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ian-berke/ppa-drawers sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install drawers
