How to execute gpk-application from modern Gnome

+1 vote
77 views

I can't find a way to start gpk-application from modern Gnome desktop. It's nowhere to be found in Activities. Typing "software" brings up nothing. Of course, the brand-spanking new Gnome in F20 apparently feels its too cumbersome to list all installed applications, like in earlier versions. gpk-application runs fine from terminal.

When I was running mate on another computer, I would log off or shutdown, and power up and login again and mate would restore all the gui apps in all the workspaces.

Gnome does not do that.

Also, I do not have a way to upgrade to Centos 7 because
1. graphic installation fails (as I have posted here before).
2. I do not want to do text install because it will clobber my existing partitioning scheme and does not provide for modifying the automatic partitioning scheme.

In CentOS 5.10, if I have, say, an X terminal window up on my screen, the next time I log in, it's there when I log in as an unprivileged user.

That's because I can save the layout the way I want to; there's a checkbox for it to save the layout upon exiting.

I see none for CentOS 6.5. So, my X-terminal isn't there when I log in each time.

Is there some way to create launchers on the Gnome 3 Classic Mode panel, as was easily done in Gnome 2?

I'm trying really hard to like Gnome 3 Classic Mode, but having a very difficult time of it, because it seems to only provide a superficial resemblance to the Gnome 2 desktop, without actually providing comparable functionality.

I recently submitted a crash report using the gnome-abrt application/applet and would like to file a comment to it. Which bugzilla did gnome-abrt submit it to? I had assumed that the gnome-abr user interface would tell me, or I would get an email from the bugzilla; but neither has happened.

I recently installed an Ubuntu Server with 16.04.2. After installing I decided I wanted to put a desktop environment on it for access to a gui. Since I still love Gnome2, I installed gnome-session-flashback on it using apt-get install gnome-session-flashback. It pulled all of the required additional packages and installed. Upon completion I restarted the server. When it came back up, there was only CLI. Trying to toggle CTRLALTF2 or CTRLALTF7 didn't do anything. I then tried running startx and xinit. It appears like it tried to go to a gui but ended up with a blank screen. It seemed like maybe it was just missing a display manager so I installed lightdm. Now I get a login screen, but I can't get a session to start.

What am I missing? Why did installing gnome-session-flashback not automatically install a display manager? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
