I have ubuntu 11.10 with Gnome3 shell DE. I have a problem, in the applications menu i can't find some applications like GParted, Update-Manager, gnome-tweak-tool that they can be run from terminal. I know that i can add launcher, but i don't know how many other applications aren't show!

I have already proved this solutions: How do I reset GNOME to the defaults? but it doesn't work.

In Unity everything is ok, can you help me please?
