Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

Natty 11.04 alpha i386 on thinkpad t42, package state from NOW

When clicking the ubuntu symbol upper left the grey shortcut dialog appears on the screen. Every single program in the second row works well. The four search shortcuts in the upper row did not react to any mouseclick. The switch right from 'shortcut' hide all icons and set them back. If text for a search is typed in the upper dialog box, nothing happens. If 'enter' was pressed for search execution, a 'space' appears behind the search text.
Every program that did not exist in the panel or lower row in the launcher can only be used by the terminal.

Sounds like your missing the place daemons or you installed from scratch without copying the .place files from /usr/share/unity/places/ to $install_prefix/share/unity/places.

First, though, please make sure you have unity-place-files and unity-place-applications installed and restart your session after installing.

Thats the problem, both packages was not installed by dependencies. I do this by hand now and check the results.

Part-1 is solved, the app launcher is working well now with all icons. The area selector switch upper right is okay.

Part-2 still exist, when typing program names the icons shrink to the right one. But 'enter' did not start the program, only a space appears in the dialog field. This is different to the 10.10 netbook unity.
