ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 131
Rosa Launcher usability suggestion - launch that app!
Last modified: 2012-04-28 05:13:05 MSD
Description of problem:
The Rosa launcher can be very nifty tool. Here's one problem I have with it: sometimes I open it and search for an application, the Launcher auto completes the command which is very nice, but when I hit enter the Launcher just closes without starting the app ... Can we change this behaviour to the Windows 7 "Run" tool?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
If the Rosa-launcher in sproke type the word search, and search results will show a SINGLE application. Then just click enteritis and it is run.
Otherwise, you can use Krunner. Press Alt+F2 and start Krunner. For more information about him can be read here http://userbase.kde.org/Plasma/Krunner
Hmm. Can you provide a list of applications which you can't run from the SimpleWelcome? And what you mean when you're speaking about "behaviour to the Windows 7 "Run" tool"?
Имелось ввиду то, что если в SW в верху в строке поиска ввести например "konsole" и нажать клавишу Enter. То SW просто закрывается. Т.к. в выводимом списке присутствуе ДВЕ иконки приложения. Если набрать "kons", то в списке поиска будет ОДНА иконка приложения. И если нажать Enter - оно запуститься.

Ok, let me give you a clear example:
1. Open SimpleWelcome, in the search box type "konsole". Press Enter. Nothing happens.
2. In Windows 7, in the Run/Search box of the Start menu type "cmd". Press Enter. Cmd is launched.
Can we have the SimpleWelcome launch the "konsole" when I press enter? Can you go this extra mile?
Let me know if it's not clear, I can explain again.
You're right - konsole doesn't start if you type "konsole" (thus, doesn't work item "Run konsole"), but will work if you type "kons" and press Enter. But I tested other applications on my system, and have found no problems. We'll look at the problem with the konsole. Thanks.
Looking forward to it, thanks!
Fixed in rosa-launcher-0.34.12. Package is in repository, please update and test it.
Indeed, I can confirm it works well now. Good job!
