This GNOME Do Wiki discusses the launcher known as 'Do', how to get it, use it, and its many plugins.
GNOME Do (Do) is an intelligent launcher tool that makes performing common tasks on your computer simple and efficient. Do not only allows you to search for items in your desktop environment (e.g. applications, contacts, bookmarks, files, music), it also allows you to specify actions to perform on search results (e.g. run, open, email, chat, play).
Want to send an email to Mom? Simply type mom <Tab> email
Want to listen to some music? Simply type beatles <Tab> play
Do provides instantaneous, action-oriented desktop search results that adapt to reflect your habits and preferences. For example, if you use Firefox web browser often, typing f in Do will launch Firefox. Or, if you visit The New York Times website often, Do will open it if you simply type nyt.Unlike other search tools that present search results as flat, homogeneous lists, Do provides familiar graphical depictions of search results that assure you that your intent is being realized correctly; searching for "mom" will show a picture of mom, and searching for "beatles" will show a Beatles album cover. Do has many more powerful and exciting capabilities that must be seen to be appreciated.
