Description:

Katapult is an application for KDE, written in C++, designed to allow faster access to applications, bookmarks, and other items. It is plugin-based, so it can launch anything that is has a plugin for. Its display is driven by plugins as well, so its appearance is completely customizable. It was inspired by Quicksilver for OS X.

Use alt+space and start typing - you'll be presented with an option to launch something depending on what you've typed.

For example, hit alt+space then type "a" "m" (hit the two keys - no spaces or quotes) and this should offer to launch amarok - hit enter to launch

If you have no notification-area icon - then hit alt+space then ctrl+c to bring up the case-sensitive menu to allow you to configure katapult


We now have a wiki - http://katapult.kde.org/wiki/

 Erm...

I think it's me, but:
I have no idea what katapult is. The description tells me nothing about what it exactly does - or, to be more exactly, how it differs from existing solutions.

Does it load the mentioned programs in the memory that they are started faster? So where is the real difference compared to autostart?

Or does it launch apps through entering names or addresses in the often mentioned Alt+Space field? If yes, where is it better than Alt+F2 (which is able to use the konqueror shortcuts and therefore much more powerfull than everything else I've ever seen)?

It would help me a lot to get a more proper description about *how* it allows fast access :)

liqui*who thought that he would know enough about Free Software, KDE and Linux stuff to understand normal program descriptions*dat

It is not you


I landed on this page after accidentally hitting "Alt+space". This loaded a big "K" in the middle of my screen, which said "katapult". Then it disapeared. Since I had no idea what this was, I referred to google, and the description on this page was NO help at all.

I was also disappointed to see that people had left comments praising the app without explaining it, after you had raised the question.

Anyway, I think I have worked it out: katapult is an alternative to the "Alt+F2" run dialog. It does not seem to laod anything "faster".. I think what they meant was that you could find applications faster.

Basically, after hitting "atl+space", you can begin typing commands, and it will bring up an icon of the first command matching what you have typed thus far.

It still does not beat using the command line.. but I guess it is a bit prettier.

It's just a different way of launching applications - some find it easier - some dont.

If you've ever used quicksilver - then you know what it's all about.

anyways - documentation is well underway - if you wish to help out - feel free to contact me - mez (at) thekatapult (dot) org (dot) uk

Why doesn't katapult find other applications besides gnome and kde ones? At least it doesn't find xterm, firefox, etc on my system.
Is it me or can it be configured/coded? I did look at the sourcecode but the kde api is very unfamiliar to me.

I'm with liquidat: what on earth does this do? As near as I can tell, it's meant to be an application launcher, but I can't figure out how to use it to launch an application, or where I ought to find plugins for it. How about some documentation explaining, for instance, why I should want this on my computer? What it does? Maybe even how to use it? Normally I have no trouble at all figuring out what something is supposed to do, even if I don't want to use it. Here.... I'm just stuck.

I installed kubuntu recently, and accidentally at some point I pressed the alt-space combo. Katapult launcher faded in, and I wouldn't know what the f**k it was. I tried mouse action etc, but nothing happened. Then I pressed a letter on the keyboard. Pressing A, it displays Ark then pressing M it displays Amarok (A followed by M).
This is the coolest app ever. you can launch apps with very few keystrokes.
From what I understand, it looks on your K menu. It gets even better though. You also have access to your bookmarks, you can play mp3s (it connects to the amarok's db) very easily. So, if i want to play Dylan's Hurricane, (and amarok is open on the tray lets say) i just press ALT-SPACE and type hurr. imediately Katapult shows the song title and Album cover and by pressing ENTER i listen to it.

Someone was wondering why he can't launch firefox. If i type firefox, a firefox folder comes up. I need to type f w b (since firefox shows up as Firefox Web Browser) to launch it. Otherwise, I could just rename the firefox launcher on k menu to something else and use that instead.

This seems to me, somehow similar to the T4 word completion technology in mobile phones.

I just love using katapult!

A combination of two things me thinks. In the configuration there's an option marked "show programs without icons". If you don't have a firefox icon..There's your problem. Solution icon FF, check the box, or start using konqui!

Sorry, but which "configuration" do you mean? There is neither a help- nor an info-file on Katapult. And the program doesn't response on mouse events, so there is no way to get even a simple context menu. I haven't even got an idea on how to restart this app...

There is a system tray icon, but you can disable it.
To configure Katapult, hit (or whatever your shortcut key is) and press . Then you can choose "Configure Katapult".

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
