Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Synapse is a launcher written in Vala that enables the users to easily launch their favorite apps or open the needed files. Among others, it searches for desktop files, allows the users to play or set to queue tracks in Banshee and Rhytmbox, it has support for commands (as a virtual terminal) and enables the users to easily suspend or hibernate the computer.
The latest version available is Synapse 0.2.99, which is still under development.
In this article I will show you how to install Synapse 0.2.99 on Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Deepin 2014, Peppermint Five, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2.0 and other Ubuntu derivative systems.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Synapse 0.2.99 on the Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04 and derivative systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the synapse package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:synapse-core/testing
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install synapse
Optional, to remove synapse, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove synapse
