Hi once more!
I’ve always been a fan of gnome-do. When I first discovered it I compared it with another similar application that according to some people was “So much better than gnome-do!”. However I found a serious problem with this app that made it unusable. I don’t remember the name of the app nor what the problem was, but after that I just started using gnome-do and it’s been working well ever since.
Today it came to my knowledge that Synapse comes installed with Ubuntu Mate 16 (or at least I don’t remember installing it myself). I hope synapse wasn’t the other app I tried back then, or if it was I hope the problem is fixed now. I’ve been using it for some minutes and everything seems OK so I guess whatever bug I experienced before is no longer present, and I would be happy to replace gnome-do with it as long as it continues to work well. So far so good.
But there’s something about Synapse I don’t like, or rather I don’t need: its animations.
There’s animations when you invoke it, animations while you type, in the results list and who knows where else. I’ve got nothing against them but I’d rather do without them. I checked the settings and I didn’t see any option for disabling them. Changing themes doesn’t help either. I also had a look at the plugins tab to see if maybe a plugin is what gives synapse its animations but this doesn’t seem to be the case.
So the question is, how do I disable synapse’s animations?
And just to make sure I’m not missing something good, are there any other apps bundled with Ubuntu Mate that allow you to do usual tasks more easily and efficiently like gnome-do/synapse?
