Linux is one of the coolest platforms to enjoy. You can easily enjoy tons of powerful apps without any issue. There are all sorts of tools ready for your enjoyment including photo and video editors, office suits, browsers, media players and what not!

Enjoying apps is fine but what will irritate anyone is the difficulty of finding out the app you just installed. Really, that’s unacceptable. Looking for an app to launch right now? Then check out Synapse.

It’s a powerful, excellent context-launch tool that will find you out your desired thing(s) as you type.

Let’s enjoy Synapse right away!

Installing Synapse

Note that this is “Synapse”, not “Synaptic” – a GUI front-end for APT.

For installing “Synapse”, run the following command(s) according to your Linux distro –

  • Ubuntu
sudo apt install synapse

  • Debian
sudo apt-get install synapse
  • Fedora
sudo dnf install synapse
  • OpenSUSE
sudo zypper install Synapse
  • Arch Linux
sudo pacman -S synapse
  • Generic Linux instruction

You have to build the tool from source. Get the latest source of Synapse.

Once the download is complete, run the following commands –

tar -xvf synapse-0.2.99.4.tar.xz

cd synapse-0.2.99.4/

./configure

make -j4

sudo make install

Using Synapse

Start Synapse –

Type to find out an app –

Want to make sure that Synapse starts every time you log into your system? Right-click on the tray icon >> select “Preferences”.

Make sure that you’ve checked “Startup on login”.

The default shortcut for firing up Synapse is “Ctrl + Spacebar”. From the preference window, you can also change that.

Need to change the look of the app? Check out the “Theme” section.

From the “Plugins” tab, you can add/remove additional features of Synapse. Each of the available plugins come up with a handy short note.
