    ALT+F2 command not found

    Hi All,

    I am running gNatty ubuntu 11.04. before yesterday, the Alt+F2 then type in gnome-tweak-tool would successfully open the Advanced Settings in application. But now it shows "command not found", same thing for gnome-terminal...

    Is there anyway to fix this? What package is the ALT+F2 related to?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes I have. For installing fixes that are specific to the machine (lenovo T420, thinkfan fix), I have to.

    The compiz setting is setup correctly as I just checked. still "command not found" for everything i type in there.

    Are you sure the package is still installed? Just saying, since even in the terminal it won't run.

    I assume you meant the compiz package? Yes it is still installed. I did uninstall it for some reason and have reinstalled it (that might be the reason?) The compiz setting looks fine to me.

    Sorry I meant gnome-terminal cannot be called from ALT+F2. If I type gnome-tweak-tool in the terminal, it will open fine.

    All application (terminal, advanced setting) can be called from the application tab, but not from ALT+F2....

    I was talking about the gnome-tweak-tool package. And if I get you right, Alt+F2 is not working at all right? Not only for that one, all others don't work right?

    correct. The situation is (same as reported in the post in ubuntu.de)
    once I press ALT+F2, the interface for typing command shows up, but besides "r", calling any other command would give "command not found"

    Are you using version 3.1.3? Apparently they fixed it with 3.1.4:

    "I retested on Fedora 16 and Alt+F2 works there so I think this was fixed by
    Gnome Shell 3.1.4. I'm going to go ahead and mark this fixed then."

    Found here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=656054

    Anyway as a workaround if you need I guess you could use kupfer or gnome-do.
