    Unity m'a tuer

    I'm so pretentious... considering myself a decent Linuxer...
    Well, now that I met Unity it's back to square one.

    Brand new 12.04, true Unity based ( swore there won't be any chasing of the gnome classic package ).

    And I have a very simple question:

    In Unity how the Hell do I find - say - all Multimedia applications?

    (In Gnome Classic, there was a convenient menu for that - not saying it was better - just saying I cannot find the equivalent in Unity)

    I'm sure the answer must be obvious - sorry for inconvenience.

    -- Edit --

    Just saw the Ubuntu software center - Oops. But one cannot start the app from there

    You mean Super. Or click on the "Ubuntu button".

    This frustrated me about Unity as well. When I wanted to browse installed games for example, I would type "games" in the search bar....

    g-a-m, showed 4 games
    g-a-m-e, only 1
    g-a-m-e-s, still only 1.

    Any of the menu based DEs I tried listed 17 games installed.

    My advice? Try Xfce
