You are apparently using Fallback. In Shell you just press <Meta> or
<Alt>+<F1> type a few letters of the app name and hit enter. It is
exactly what docks/appletts like Docky and GNOME-Do provided.
I do not find that easier than simply browsing a menu,
an action to which I
have been accustomed for uncountable years,
that is the *definition* of "simply browsing a menu".
Menus that are browsable with the keyboard as well. A
time proved design!
Yes. And that is exactly what GNOME Shell overview provides.
I'm used to have a command line applet on which I
type the name of the
apps, or choose a previous entry. I can not add that applet, I don't know
how to add applets to the panel.
Alt-F2 At least in GNOME-Shell that brings up a command line tool;
which also supports history. I use this all the time to run commands
I have two apps running now, one a terminal and
another yelp. The terminal
is not listed in the bar. That is also confusing.
There is a shell extension for a window-list; although I fail to
understand the point. The user knows what applications they opened.
They can go to overview mode, or Alt-Tab, or Alt-`. I was convinced I
couldn't live without the taskbar. But the GNOME developers where
correct, the window-list is useless.
I have only two workspaces, and I have not seen yet
how to add more (I work
with 12 in this machine running G2).
In shell they are allocated dynamically. You always have 1 more [an
empty one]. Just go down and a new one will get created. You don't
have to "add more", it just happens
