Bug Description

1. GNOME Shell will be default in GNOME 3.
2. GNOME Shell cannot see certain applications when typing in an application name (IE: ubuntu Software center.)
3. Solution: add GNOME Menu to Docky.

AWN and Cairo Dock already have GNOME Menu equivalents, but Docky is much prettier and more suited for use with mutter/clutter.

To GNOME-Shell Project: Maybe add a plugin that allows to search gnome-menu db instead of what gnome-shell searches now?

Hey tvst.

I would definately be interested. There is a way to make cardapio show at roughly the right location by using compiz.

Right now the DockyItemCommand works pretty well. Especially with Docky in Panel mode, since this way its rather easy to place the cardapio properly with compiz.

Here is a work-around for Docky users who don't have cardapio, which will pop up the menu when you click on the Docky icon. I believe this requires that gnome-panel be running somewhere. If you have a menu on the panel it will pop up at that location, otherwise it will pop up at your mouse cursor.

Install the package 'xvkbd' and then set this GConf key:

/apps/docky-2/Docky/Items/DockyItem/DockyItemCommand

to:

xvkbd -text "\[Alt_L]\[F1]"

I found the solution - for Applications menu in Docky you can use Gnomenu software, look at https://launchpad.net/gnomenu/+announcements

It says "work in progress will be on gnomenu 2.9" for docky.

which basically says to me, "it's not done, and will not be done in 2.9 even."

Timo:
I have updated just Cardapio so it's better for use with Docky. Check out that FAQ page again:
