Unity Dash shows some big buttons by hitting the Ubuntu logo: Internet, Mail, Games, Music. I'm currently using different programs than the original ones included in Ubuntu, but these buttons have become useless, not opening any application. Is there any way to fix this?

aren't those buttons categories? – RolandiXor Mar 5 '11 at 18:55
They're not. I was they used to launch Evolution, Firefox, Rhythmbox but after I replaced these apps with others, the buttons became of no use. – Tigull Apr 9 '11 at 19:22

This is not possible in Unity in 10.10.

Your preferred applications dictate which apps do what in the dash.

Not in Maverick I'm afraid. – Tigull Apr 25 '11 at 16:07
ah, sorry about that, I missed the 10.10 tag – nerdy_kid Apr 25 '11 at 21:39
