I want to integrate the run command to be a unity lens so I don't need to press Alt + F2 to run a command. It would then be reachable from dash like any other lens such as file, music, ..

Hey, do you intend to get the run command by pressing <super> key? –  Paulius Šukys Sep 25 '12 at 11:57
No, i wanna integrate it with Dash to be just another unity lens –  user61928 Sep 25 '12 at 12:04
Yeah, I have been wanting to ask that same question. Run-command can remember command lines including options, which the other or regular Dash lenses don't. It would be great to navigate back to those with just the mouse, on occasion. –  Ed Donovan Sep 26 '12 at 0:13

Not used it myself, but you might get some joy with 'quickly'.

The link below shows how it's used for a wikipedia lens, but it might help you with what you are trying to do...
