Getting completion feature with Alt+F2 in Unity?

I finally upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 and so far, I am liking the experience.

The only thing I have a problem with, is:

  • While in the execute dialog, I can't complete the path with Tab like I could do in 10.10

Is anybody having any fix for this?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Does it help if you log out and choose the Ubuntu Classic session before logging back in? It will give you a GNOME2 interface like in 10.10 (no Unity), but it could be a temporary fix. – Christopher Kyle Horton Jun 9 '11 at 7:45
Yes, it works. It does give me the classic Gnome2 interface. but this is surely not a solution :-/ – Sheikh Aman Jun 9 '11 at 12:02
This is what I was thinking about, to split them, but somehow I wrote them into one. Sorry. I just try appmenu-gtk – Sheikh Aman Jun 9 '11 at 14:08
One more unusual thing found. When I drag a document to the launcher, it only highlights the programs that can open it, but what about the case when I have to drop it somewhere else? like in my thinderbird or GMail, to attach in in the mail? this is bad. – Sheikh Aman Jun 9 '11 at 14:36
@Jorge I just did that. I hope it looks fine now. – Sheikh Aman Jun 10 '11 at 5:59

Couldn't find any solution to this.. as a result, got used to with the default Unity behavior :-/

Well, Natty is different and making something different may result in bugs. Crashes might happen. For the top bar a restart (re-log-in) usually helps. I didn't have many problems with Unity.

I've restarted the system several times, as a part of my regular routine, but that didn't help. – Sheikh Aman Jun 9 '11 at 5:32

It seems that unity may not be quite ready for prime time yet. I have experienced similar issues and I think the simplest fix for now may be to disable unity and revisit in a month or two.
