Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Drawers is an open source application, that enables the users to create drawers for the Unity Launcher, which enables the users to organize their favorite apps, in quick lists.
Via the Active Drawers, the users can launch the content of the a folder (by left clicking), which gets updated when new files is added, or access the files as quicklists, by right clicking. The quicklist displays only the most recent 10 items, but they can also be pinned, to be always available.
The AppMenu Drawers provides a Gnome Classic-like application menu, enabling the users to categorize the apps in order to have them displayed automatically, and pinned to the Launcher’s quicklist.
The latest version available is Drawers 13.10, which has been recently released.
In this article I will show you how to install Drawers 13.10 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr and Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander.
