I just started using gnome-do (awesome little application!) in the past few weeks, but am having one problem with it. I can't figure out how to get it to run terminal commands without opening the terminal, the same way that the "run application" dialogue can. For example, if I type pkill misbehavingapplicationX into gnome-do, it won't do anything. And typing run first doesn't do anything either. Any suggestions?

That link seems to no longer be up. Any idea of where we might go instead? – Benjamin Mako Hill Nov 15 '13 at 22:17
