    It is VERY similar to GNOME Do. It is a program launcher with similar functionalities and few but beautiful themes.

    DocFetcher vs Gnome Do opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments
    MageJohn

    DocFetcher is for searching through the text of documents on your desktop, while Gnome Do is a more general desktop search tool with a focus on launching applications. While there is a little overlap, most people searching for a Gnome Do alternative are looking for another application launcher.

    "Gnome do" is program launcher whereas "DocFetcher" is in-document content search tool. The difference between the two is enough to make a fair-minded person consider the later as irrelevant to former. In shorter words: It is not alternative to Gnome Do.

    Thanks!
