Meizu MX4, to be released few months later, will be the first mobile devices with pre-installed Ubuntu Touch OS. In addition to the default core applications, there are already quite a few third-party apps available in the App Store.

With a simple python script, desktop users can search and view all the Ubuntu Touch applications available in App Store.

Download the script from Github page:

Download Applist.py

Once you downloaded the package:

  1. Extract and go into the result folder.
  2. Right-click on the script file and select Properties, under Permissions tab, check the box between “Execute:” and “Allow executing file as program”.
  3. Finally run the script from the context menu and you’ll see the window in above picture.

run-python-script

If you don’t see the Run option in file’s context menu, go to File Browser Menu -> Edit -> Preferences -> Behavior tab, check the box where it says “Run executable text files when they are opened”. You might need to run command nautilus -q to restart Nautilus to take place.

run-executable-in-nautilus

That’s it. Enjoy!
