After upgrading to 12.04 from 11.10, I am no longer able to find Software Sources in Dash. I have installed software-properties-gtk, and can open via terminal, but cannot get Dash to find it? Is this still possible? I want to be able to go direct to my sources without having to load Synaptic or Software Center. What I have done now is launched from terminal, and then pinned to launcher, but typing in dash still does not find it.
First copy the software sources desktop file to your local applications folder:
mkdir -p ~/.local/share/applications cp /usr/share/applications/software-properties-gtk.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/
Edit the file:
change the line
Save, logout and login.
You can do following steps for showing "Software Source" program in Unity search result:
- Install "Main Menu" program from software center(package name is "alacarte").
- Run "Main Menu" program.
- From right panel called "Menus" open "System Tools" node and select "Preference" node.
- Check "Software Source" in next pane.
- Finish, in next login you will see Unity "Software Source" in search result
