I just switched from Kubuntu 11.10 to 12.04 and noticed that the application launcher is not behaving exactly the same.
In 11.10 I open the launcher with a keybinding, write the first letters of something that I want to run, and then use the arrow keys to choose from the list of applications the system found.
In 12.04 the arrow keys do not seem to work. If I write a few letters so that I get a list of choices pressing the arrow keys does absolutely nothing. I noticed that I can get to the list by pressing
ESC, but this seems pretty unnecessary compared to how it used to work.
Does anyone know how to enable the arrow keys directly in the application launcher?
The specific launcher is the default launcher when installing Kubuntu Desktop 11.10 and 12.04. The name is
Kickoff and it is a plasma launcher.
