Like a lot of people right now I am loving Google+ – the search giants stab at social networking.
Until Google get around to releasing a kick-ass API for Google+ so someone can make a Google+ Messaging Menu entry, desktop app or Unity Launcher with notification badge the following Unity Quicklist should make for a welcome stop-gap.
Download Google+ Unity Quicklist
Credit goes to Ferramosca Roberto whose original Italian Quicklist I’ve translated to English. I’ve also added a different, more Google+-y icon by ~d-bliss.
So to download and install you need to open a new Terminal tab or window. Enter each of the following commands carefully: -
- wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3000127/google%2B.desktop
- wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3000127/google%2B1.png
- mv google+.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/
- sudo mv google+1.png /usr/share/pixmaps/
Once completed add the ‘Google+’ quicklist to the Unity Launcher by dragging the ‘google+.desktop’ file in ~/.local/share/applications onto the Unity Launcher.
