- How do I run a command? 3 answers
I'm switching over from Windows to Ubuntu, and I want to know how to get the functionality of Windows Run dialog in Ubuntu.
In Windows, I just go to the Start button, and enter in the search field
run, and the Run dialog pops up. I mainly use this program to connect to servers in my network by typing
\\ + the name of the server.
How do I replicate this functionality in Ubuntu? Do I use the command line? I've read elsewhere about an old GNOME program called "Run" that I can get by installing the Compizconfig Settings Manager, but I don't know if this is what I want.
