one of the things I love about linux is freedom. I am not forced to follow 100% of the 'rules' that a company or a programmer thought for the product in its origin. With that in mind, what I would like is to put simple names to my applications, instead of having to remember funny names like 'featherpad' for a text editor, 'okular' when I need to read a PDF file, 'qlipper' etc. you get my point. Also, I tend to try several applications before settling in my favorite for a given task so it is not easy to memorize all these crazy names. The thing is, I usually call these from "runner" application (Alt+F2 in my default setup). So when I need to open a calculator I need to remember the crazy name of the last calculator I installed (qalculate!).
So, it would be great if I could change the 'name' of an application, at least how my 'runner' (not sure if it is called like that) calls it. This way, I can just press Alt+F2 and write "calculator" and it will offer the application I chose to (in this case, 'qalculate!') and 'libreoffice calc' as well. By typing "text editor" I would see 'featherpad' and 'libreoffice writer' in the list. By typing "drawing" I would see 'inkscape' etc.
I understand runner searches for name of the application, that is why I see 'libreoffice calc' when I type "calc". But I don't see qalculator! because it does not include the 'calc' text I just entered. So, can I change something somewhere so 'runner' associates qalculator! with the text "calculator"? Then I would do the same for "text" as mentioned above, etc.
