I have been googling for a terminal lens, i.e. a Unity lens that
integrates the terminal into the usual dash replaces the current Alt+F2 functionality.
For instance one could have a line of icons as it currently is, with command history sensitive to the typed word, and below that terminal output. All I could find on this were stale old posts in the Ubuntu Forums and an old brainstorm.
Does anyone know of a working terminal lens for Unity, like my mock-up above?
