Fogger is utility tool that can convert any web app in to a native Ubuntu Unity desktop app. Which means you can use Wunderlist, Evernote, Google Drive, Google Calendar etc web app like any regular Ubuntu app. You can search for these app in Unuty HUD and launch them from there.So if your favourite web app is missing in Ubuntu, Fogger gives you a chance to run it in Ubuntu as a desktop application.
Until Ubuntu 12.10, Fogger was available in Ubuntu Software Centre but starting from Ubuntu 13.04, it is no longer in official repository. And this is why I came up with this post to show you how to install Fogger in Ubuntu 13.04.
Install Fogger in Ubuntu 13.04:
To install Fogger we’ll be using a PPA. The PPA is not official but works pretty fine in Ubuntu 13.04. It should also work in Linux Mint and other similar Linux distributions.Open a terminal and use the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:loneowais/fogger sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install fogger
I deliberately did not try to explain the usage of Fogger because I plan to write a detailed article on how to create desktop applications with Fogger. This is just a quick post intended for those users who have used Fogger before. Any questions, suggestions are most welcomed. Feel free to drop to the comment section and express yourself.
