xfce4-appfinder - Application Finder

The Application Finder is a program to find and launch installed applications on your system, and quickly execute commands. It does this by searching your file system for .desktop files, and displays a categorized list of all the GUI applications on your system.

Tip: You can use the Application Finder to quickly add launchers to your panel - simply drag an item onto your desired panel and it will automatically create a launcher for that application.


Debugging Support

xfce4-appfinder currently supports three different levels of debugging support, which can be setup using the configure flag –enable-debug (check the output of configure –help):

Argument Description
`yes` This is the default for Git snapshot builds. It adds all kinds of checks to the code, and is therefore likely to run slower. Use this for development of xfce4-appfinder and locating bugs in xfce4-appfinder.
`minimum` This is the default for release builds. This is the recommended behaviour.
`no` Disables all sanity checks. Don't use this unless you know exactly what you do.
