Description:

[size=6]Mangonel, a simple application launcher for KDE4.[/size]Mangonel is intended as a light weight replacement for the, in my view bloated and slow, standard KRunner. Sadly you can't actually get rid of KRunner because it's also responsible for your screensaver and power-management.
[size=6]Mangonel currently lets you do these things.[/size]
  • Start applications in the KDE menu.
  • Opening files and directories with their default application.
  • Execute shell commands, including arguments.
  • Use it as a calculator.


  • The default global shortcut to show Mangonel is `CTR+ALT+Space`, you can change this in the KDE4 system settings.

    Mangonel came to be because I started to really mis Katapult. I loved Katapult for its simplicity and speed. Those are two points I really can't find in KRunner.


    [size=6]Get mangonel.[/size]Download the latest source from github: https://github.com/tarmack/Mangonel/archives/master
    Glone the git repository: git://github.com/tarmack/Mangonel.git
    For Ubuntu users there is a PPA available at https://launchpad.net/~tarmack/+archive/ppa-tarmack.




    Changelog:

    --Version 0.1.3-- (3 Jan 2011)
    * Dropped dependencies to Qt4.5 and KDE 4.3.
    * Released Ubuntu builds in a PPA at https://launchpad.net/~tarmack/+archive/ppa-tarmack.

    --Version 0.1.2-- (3 Jan 2011)
    Soon Mangonel will be available in an ubuntu PPA.
    Changes:
    * Added a configuration dialog. The global shortcut is now configurable from inside Mangonel.
    * Mangonel is now able to process composed characters.
    * A bunch of small improvements.
    This update registers the gobal shortcut under the name Mangonel with a capital M, this breaks the old config, you'll have to reregister your shortcut.

    Apparently this member function is only available in Qt 4.7 and later. I replaced it with a standard time function.

    If I'm not mistaken it should now compile with Qt4.5 and up, although I'm not sure which KDE version is required.

     2 Request

    1. Support krunner plugin, maybe the appearance is different, but krunner have more plugins. Another framework for plugin seems not make sense.
    2. Use some different way to catch keys, may be a hidden window for input is well. Because current we cannot support input method, such as chinese.
    Actually gnome-do supports, maybe they have some code can be borrowed from.

    Thank you very much!

    Thank you for your feedback and testing.

    Mangonel is now capable of receiving composed characters. This is also important for users of languages that use accents.

    I looked in to making the KRunner plugins available in Mangonel. Unfortunately this will never be implemented.
    The runnerContext used for KRunner plugins requires these plugins to supply an icon as an actual icon pixmap. The creation of icons is quite a costly operation for a few dozen icons. In Mangonel icons are loaded at the absolute last possible moment. This is the main reason for Mangonels ability to start matching when just one character is supplied. KRunner only starts matching if three or more characters are supplied because the searches are to expensive otherwise.

    Thank you for your feedback.

    I am always on the lookout for good ideas for plugins. But I think I do not really understand what you are asking for. Do you want to be able to search the insides of documents?
    If that is the case, I don't think this is feasible since that would get quite slow when there are, even a few decently sized, documents in the folder. Such functionality would be more in the realm of a desktop search agent I think.
    I read on your blog:) that KDE4.6 will have this functionality in Dolphin. Maybe, if it is fast enough, I can leverage this to expose it in mangonel.

    Well.. i mean not to search inside the document. I know it would be very slow to search inside the document content.
    i mean whole folder structure inside the harddisk.
    Anyway to search inside document in dolphin is quite good, although there's still a big issue with strigi ini RC 1. Well hope this will get fix soon :).

    Once again, i admire your prorgam because it faster than krunner when searching,

    Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
     Yes, unity is alien technology!
     It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
     Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
     Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
     Gnome 3 default shell is much better
     I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
     None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
