Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So far when I want to run an application, I click the Ubuntu button (or whatever it's called in the upper left), then Games, then All Applications, then I can either select or search for an application. Is that really the best way? The "Games" part really throws me :)

In Unity, you should be able to:

  • click on the Apps Place (an icon on the launcher which says "Applications")
  • enter the name of the app in the search field

... and you should see your app listed there, either as installed or available.

You can also use the Ubuntu button, but then you are searching both applications AND files.

Hi your asking about searching for applications in unity.But in your question say that click ubuntu and etc etc. Are sure about unity ?. As far as i know Unity is available only in ubuntu Net book edition and ubuntu Natty desktop and its variants.Because if use unity you will see an interface as shown in this link http://www.ubuntu.com/netbook/features. You can add the search menu item in the Unity bar.So, you can easily access search on one click.
