 menu alternative

Score 50%

i'm using a kicker menu alternative and my most-used applications is what comes first on the list (there's about 10), so i just click on it. but for things like yast, control center, or konqueror i have hotkeys for it.

 missing option...

Katapult is now the default way for Kubuntu power users to lauch their apps. Hit Atl+Space then start typing, until it finds the one you want.

you could just as well use the kicker applet with automatic and drop-down completion.
its really the same, just start typing and it completes to your most used app, most of the time you dont need to enter more than 2 or 3 chars


# cd /usa/whitehouse
# rm -rf *

Yeah, katapult rules.
And its more than just an autocompletion as the alt+f2 dialog does. For examle if you type "Query" katapult starts "Mysql Query Browser". The run dialog doesn't do that. You can also open bookmarks or calculate with katapult.
I'm loving it.

yeah, i don't understand why this isn't used more... its extremely usefull, imho. i start most apps with 2 or 3 letters and [enter]. the applet only needs a shortcut!

Exactly that's the problem, why I use rather the run dialog than this applet. For the applet I have to use mouse and keyboard to focus and enter the command.

If I use the mouse anyway, I could also use a button on the kicker.

to come back to the topic: why isn't there a "katapult" option in the poll as it is kde's new super cool launching application. it's just like the alt+f2 dialog but has better autocompletion, more features and looks cooler. also alt+space is much more convenient to hit than alt+f2.

it´s unimportant how you start your apps as long as you run it on a free operating system. ;)

I mostly use the konsole because i often have to give some switches and arguments.

amarok and kdevelop are getting started via the kmenu.

 Many of the above.

I use a good mix of kHotkeys, the run dialogue, and a few kicker icons.

But instead of using alt+F2 to open the minicli, I have mapped it to win+menu. It's a much faster, more comfortable, and elegant shortcut than the bottom of the keyboard to top of the keyboard action required to do an alt+F2. Give it a try, I bet you'll like it.

 Alt+F2

 
 by blaster999 on: Feb 8 2006
 
Score 50%

I used to use Alt+F2 a lot. Now I placed a mini-CLI on my kicker panel, so I can type the name of the command right there w/o a need to open the run dialog. Very handy.


And, I use quite a bit of hotkeys (thanks to my multimedia keyboard).


It is not the size of the hammer that counts. It's how you wield it.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
