View Full Version : [gnome] App search in main menu for gnome

May 20th, 2009, 06:53 PM
I installed Jaunty on my macbook. I am using Gnome. In my applications menu, I dont see a search box that searches for installed apps like in KDE. Is there a way I can add it to the menu? An answer with some details would be most appreciated , as I am newbie to Ubuntu

No, but if you prefer that kind of menu over Gnome's default menu there are loads of different menu applets available. For example GnoMenu gives a menu lot like the one used in KDE4 & Windows Vista...
