Hi there,
Is there any way to configure the run window to retain 100s of previous commands that I execute? currently it does not store more than 10ish commands which is annoying.

thanks

I no of no easy way to configure that. You could simply use the Terminal instead.

Better alternative..
gmrun (http://www.bazon.net/mishoo/gmrun.epl)

In ~/.gmrunrc, set your amount of lines to remember like so..
History = 500

Is there any way to assign ALT+F2 to this program?
for example when I press ALT+F2 it shows gmrun instead of usual run application.

Thanks

From terminal..

gconf-editor

Browse to Apps -> Metacity -> keybinding-commands
Now edit "command_1".. set it's value to gmrun

Browse to Apps -> Metacity -> global_keybindings
Now edit "run_command_1".. set it's value to <ALT>F2
And.. edit "panel_run_dialog".. and delete the value.

It should work.
