Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Slingscold is an open-source and lightweight launcher written in Vala and GTK+, enabling the users to easily access their favorite applications. It is available in two versions, both providing a search bar and the icons displayed, but the difference is that the regular Slingscold is full screen, while the Slingscold Launcher isn’t.

Due to the fact that they have support for the most popular desktop environments like, Unity, GNOME, Mate, Cinnamon, KDE, Pantheon, LXDE and LXQt, the two Slingscolds can be used on the most popular Linux systems.
