gnome-do or krunner which really is superior but I'm not currently using KDE. GnomeDo also comes with the Docky interface which gives you a very cool dock. So to sum up: If using Gnome I use gnome-do If using KDE I use krunner

The Start Menu should contain links to all of your applications. If it doesn't, then create a folder with shortcuts to your other applications and index that. I would stick with only indexing your "My Documents" folder, and avoid indexing the whole drive. Launchy doesn't handle that as well.

Maybe a little more than you asked for but FARR has a plugin that can do this. On top of it you get an excellent app launcher;)

The Everything FAQ links to an article explaining how to bypass UAC on Vista using a shortcut. I'm not using Windows 7 at the moment so I can't test it, but I presume a similar process will work. After that, make sure you use the correct shortcut from Launchy.

open launchy (Alt+space) open Options (Ctrl+`) go to Plugins tab select "Runner" from available plugins click the plus button to add a new runner and fill in the fields "name", "program" and "arguments" "name" -> whatever you want to type in launchy to start the conversation (eg. jacob) "program" -> the path to your pidgin.exe (eg. C:\Documents and ...

It works fine for me on Windows 7 x64

Launchy is available for Linux -- having only used it on Windows (I use GNOME 3 on Linux, and an app launcher seems superfluous there), does the Windows version have any feature not available on its Linux counterpart yet?

Use the Everything search engine, to which you can also assign a hotkey if required. Type enough of the name to identify the folder, since the shown selection is further refined with every character that you type. Once the folder is on the screen, double-click to open in Explorer, or right-click for more options.

I don't think that Launchy comes wih such a feature. You can try the integrated plugin Runner. This does not allow two applications as program name, but you can write a small batch file that accepts two or more arguments (in your case executables) and use that in the Runner plugin. The other way is to write an own plugin.

I run Launchy 2.6 beta 2. Runner config is following: name: cons command: c:\windows\system32\mstsc.exe arguments: /v:$$ /admin entering of IP address works fine. Probably you had earlier command without "/v:" and after modification tried immediately without rescanning the catalog...

PyLaunchy plugin - which enable creation of Launchy plugins with Python and besides it comes with PyGoy plugin which do exactly what you want.

Just press F5 in Launchy 2.5 to rescan the catalog. Alternatively, if you really, really want a shortcut, create a shortcut with a target of: "C:\Program Files\Launchy\Launchy.exe" -rescan And put it in some folder that is in the Launchy catalog. Just be sure to read the manual from now on. It does say: Launchy 2.5 PLEASE READ THIS!

Here's your best bet, which is what I do: Use the Pidgin Hotkeys plugin to assign a global hotkey to the buddy list, use that to bring it up. Start typing the name of the contact, and pidgin will highlight the name in the buddy list. Hit enter, instant message window pops up, start typing your message. Once you start using it, you'll wonder why you did ...

I would add: C:\Documents and Settings C:\Program Files That should get most of what you want I would think.

The most powerful launcher for windows is Find and Run Robot. For more complete indexing, without causing any slowdowns or cruft is to combine it with the wonderful port of the linux locate command, Locate32. Firstly, the heuristics for learning in FARR are much better than Launchy, still not as good as Quicksilver, but closer. FARR has some brilliant ...

Yes - I think I've cracked it (partially). If I disconnect my (physical) LAN connection before starting enso, it launches fine. Then I can plug my LAN back in and all is well. Perhaps there's a fault in some "phone home" logic that is bypassed when the connection is down? I suspect perhaps changing the windows 7 rules/permissions may help, but I've not ...

If you use Gnome as your desktop, then try using Gnome-Do instead of Launchy.

Do you need the keystroke or do you just want to use Launchy? You can click the icon in the notification area to get the Launchy bar to appear. Not as quick as a keystroke obviously but at least the option exists.

As described in the Everything FAQ, starting Everything with the Windows Task Scheduler works in Launchy, but you can’t input your search term in Everything via Launchy. In my opinon, you have to live with the Windows 7 UAC if you want to benefit from searching your files with Everything via Launchy. Alternately, you can disable the UAC in Windows 7 and ...

Kupfer and Wbar does better if you want something really lightweight but ubuntu is by far the worst distro to see a speed improvement, you should try ArchLinux by the Chakra live cd/dvd project and mod it to what you want ...

This is due to launchy being an x86 application. Because of that, when it tries to execute a program from the "Program Files" folder, the path is transformed into "Program Files (x86)" and then it fails because the program is not there. See this post for more information: http://sourceforge.net/projects/launchy/forums/forum/766268/topic/3356037 Apart from ...

I personally user Kupfer. It looks a bit like GnomeDO but is faster and more stable. You can install an up-to-date version trough ubuntu-tweak. I forgot, you can assign programs and folders as favourites

In AutoHotKey: GameProcess := `YourGameExecutableNameHere` Process, Wait, %GameProcess% Process, Close, Launchy.exe Process, WaitClose, %GameProcess% Run Launchy.exe

Usually, the local Launchy data is stored under %AppData%/Launchy (you can enter exactly this string into a Windows Explorer address bar). launchy.ini is the file containing all of your settings, such as indexed folders and preferred matches for any ambiguous strings (such as if you've forced box to be used for VirtualBox instead of Dropbox). The two icon ...

I'm not sure I fully understand the question, but I'm assuming that your task is run by passing in whatever you type as the command line arguments to the script, and because you are using wscript.arguments.item(0) as the subject you need to add quotes to ensure that the full subject is included in the first argument. Using the (slightly crazy) code from ...
