Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

The dash and places menu don't seem to support any standard keyboard shortcuts.

For example, I'm expecting (and it'd be really useful) to be able to tab through the results after searching and then enter to launch.

Also, the doesn't seem to be any keyboard shortcut available to start Dash. I'd expect Super + space or alt + F2 or something like that.

Is this a duplicate? I'm talking primarily about shortcuts within dash / places, whereas #617356 is talking about shortcuts to launch them.
