I have been using gmrun to launch programs like run dialog in the windows.

One thing annoying me is i am not able launch file directories from gmrun.

I am entering the path in gmrun dialog box and enter OK..Nothing happens after that..enter image description here

It would be very nice if we can do that..

Is there anything i am missing here?

I am using pure Ubuntu 10.04LTS with gnome desktop.


You should enter it as:

nautilus /home/ram/Downloads

Since not all of these application launchers have the ability to launch directories by launching the file manager.

  • I was thinking to add nautilus but i assumed it requires sudo also at the begining..Thanks for the answer. – javanoob Apr 7 '11 at 15:14
  • @javanoob: sudo is only required to open something as root, and in such a case you would want to use gksu and not sudo :) – RolandiXor Apr 7 '11 at 16:05
