After using KDE 3.5 for years, I defected to Gnome when KDE 4.0 came out. I have recently installed Kubuntu Maverick on my netbook and have decided that I now like KDE again:)

The one bit of functionality that I am missing is the keyboard short cuts of Gnome-Do. So if I type Windows key Em, return and Emacs launches.

The search box in Kubuntu sort of does this. However, I have to click in the box and when I have typed the first few characters I have to click on the icon with the mouse.

Is there any way I can do this just using the keyboard and not the mouse? I have searched the help and Googled without much success.

Use Krunner (Alt-F2)

Thanks, that does the trick nicely.
