As you can with most full desktop environments.

It's one of the first things I teach people when I convert them thumb.gif

And I still disagree about Unity. As any desktop environment can be easy and fast to navigate. Gnome 3 Shell and Unity share a good portion of their UI's with each other. And are equally easy to get to your programs. The majority can simply right click and add launcher to taskbar for anything you use enough to warrant needing speedy launching.

As simple as simple gets.

Well...can't every DE do that by default with the Alt+F2 combo? I know I could do with Gnome, E17, KDE, LXDE, XFCE, and I figure it must be in Unity so...? I do use the "runner/launcher" commands for just about every DE I use so I'm with you on that but some people find a 2 key combo very difficult (just read through the Win8 haters and you can tell who doesn't know about the WIN/Super key combos).

You can do that in a bash terminal as well.

No need to say bash. Terminal is terminal. As there are multiple shells that all do the same thing ( I use zsh for example and not bash ).

And doing so is slow, because then you'd have to launch a terminal before doing anything and then close it at the end. Adding an extra couple of steps. Either you migrate to the application menu or other click to open a terminal, or use a launcher to launch the terminal, then lauch your program, then close. Becomes... slower.

Hey, just pointing out a fact, no need to nit pick.

 

Not all terminals support autocomplete, a terminal is not supposed to be used as a replacement for an application launcher and sometimes there are no other choices.

Autocomplete is supported by all the most popular terminals ( I've used the majority available in the Arch repositories ), and if it isn't on by default is an easy switch by adding the option in your ~/.Xresources file or respective .bash/.zsh/.{insertshelldotfilehere}.

Most of my programs run within a terminal though so I have to use them frown.gif

I'm using Xubuntu 12.10 but I'm not at all impressed. The 12.10 installer for Unity sucked, Compix crashed twice and firefox screwed up and caused some errors twice and caused a reboot (that's happened on both installs).

I'm trying to get Eclipse 3.7.2 +Borland Together Tool for a UML project and it's not having any of that either.

On the plus side, my resolution was automatically set to 1920x1080 in 12.10 and I didn't have to majorly mess around to get it working properly unlike 12.04
