Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Arronax is an open-source application that allows the users to easily create .desktop files (valid for following DEs: GNOME, KDE, MATE, ROX, RazorQt, Trinity, Unity and XFCE) and Quicklist icons for Unity. It can be used as either a Nautilus plugin or as a standalone application.
The latest version available is Arronax 0.06, which has been recently released, coming with a bunch of optimizations and some GUI tweaks.
In this article I will show you how to install Arronax 0.06 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, Pinguy OS 14.04, Pinguy OS 12.04, Deepin 2014, Peppermint Five, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2.0 and other Ubuntu 14.04 and Ubuntu 12.04 derivative systems.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Arronax 0.06 on 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 arronax package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:diesch/testing
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install arronax
Optional, if you are using Nautilus (Files) as the default file manager, the arronax package will also install the arronax plugin for nautilus.
After the installation, to make arronax available, restart nautilus:
$ nautilus -q
Optional, to remove arronax, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove arronax
