    HOWTO: Install Deskbar-applet

    This guide will teach you how to install the deskbar-applet as seen in Dapper Drake. The Deskbar-applet is the little search-box up the top and it is very useful for finding files on the fly.

    Okay, to get started, open Terminal (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and run the following command:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install deskbar-applet
    Ubuntu will start downloading some packages, and then installing them to your system. After installation of Deskbar-applet is finished, right-click the bar up the top and click "Add to Panel...". This will bring up a window with alot of different icons and text.

    Scroll down to the Accessories section of that window and double-click the Deskbar icon (the icon with the magnifying glass). This will then add Deskbar-applet to your screen. To use it just type some text and it will search as you type.

    To remove the deskbar-applet from your bar, just right-click the icon on the left and click "Remove From Panel"

    Oh, I forgot to mention that when you right click the deskbar-applet and choose "Properties" you can edit where deskbar-applet searches.

    Re: HOWTO: Install Deskbar-applet

    I am in need of a bit of assistance.

    I installed deskbar-applet, but it does not show up in the Gnome menu. Is there a way to manually add it?

    Thanks
