The new version of Ulauncher 5.3. How to install in Ubuntu

Available for download new stable version of the launcher application for Linux ULauncher.

Ulauncher included in the list of the best systems run apps for Ubuntu and other Linux distributions due to its lightning-fast responsiveness and a vast array of plugins.

Ulauncher 5.3.0 is the first stable release in the 5 series.x and the first version to fully support Python 3.

For this reason, Ulauncher 5.3.0 is not compatible with plugins that you have collected to 4.the x series (and API v1) – keep this in mind if you plan to upgrade from the old version of the application.

Fortunately, many of the most popular plugins Ulauncher has been ported to use the new v2 API and work just as well as before. Before upgrading check the list below to make sure that all the extras that you expect in the Ultimate Productivity™ available.

Other changes on the new version:

  • The new version of the schema to support stable and beta versions
  • Correction of errors, including omissions in the results when using arrow keys
  • The app now stores a file format .db in ~/.local/share/ulauncher
  • The application will use the correct window position, and others.

To update or install Ulauncher 5.3.0 on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and above (and distros based on Ubuntu such as Linux Mint), you need add the official PPA Ulauncher with the source code of your software:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:agornostal/ulauncher
sudo apt update && sudo apt install ulauncher

If you just need this release, without any future updates, you can download a separate installation package from the website Ulauncher.

Arch users can find this release in AUR. Fedora users can use packages .the rpm listed on the website Ulauncher.

Finally, the source code is available on Github.
