I am a new Ubuntu user and am looking for an alternative to Executor or Launchy, both keystroke launchers. I have tried Gnome DO which is very similar to Launchy and it's good but I still miss Executor's functionality.
The major difference between Launchy and Executor is the the emphasis on user-defined keywords, which allow users to set keywords for launching any given application. In other words you can create your own commands/keystrokes.
I also don't like Gnome DO indexing all of my programs, as I don't use all of them. Instead I prefer assigning my keywords/progs/folders paths manually.
