Projects / gnome-run-dialog


gnome-run-dialog uses the same history as GNOME's one, but sorts it alphabetically. It also allows you to run a command as root, or in a terminal, or both. You can also clear the history or choose a file as an argument for the application. As soon as you start typing in the textentry, a completion will be shown, which shows every matching application in /usr/bin and /usr/sbin, which you can then select. It also allows you to pass environment variables to your application.
