I'd like to use the gnome version of Alt+F2 to run commands since Unity's Alt+F2 doesn't support tab completion.
So far I've tried the following steps:
- Open CompizConfig Settings Manager
- Go to General->Gnome Compatibility
- Assign Run Dialog to Alt+F2 (which warns me I'm disabling 'Key to execute a command' which is under Desktop->UbuntuUnity Plugin->Key to execute a command)
- Restart computer
After logging back in Alt+F2 doesn't do anything.
I've also gone to System Settings->Keyboard->Shortcuts->System->Show the run command prompt and set it to Alt+F2 with no luck.
Any idea why the gnome run dialog isn't popping up? I've read other similar questions on this site which seemed to indicate the above steps have solved this problem in the past, but for some reason they aren't doing the trick for me. Is this some kind of bug with my setup? Any ideas?
