openSUSE 11.1 GNOME Quick Start Guide
Previous Page Home Next Page

Starting Programs

To run a program in openSUSE, click Computer on the panel to open the main menu screen. If the program you want does not appear in the main menu screen, click More Applications to view a list of all available applications grouped in categories. You can also limit the list to show only applications with a specific name by entering the name or its part to the Filter field. Click an entry in the list to start the corresponding program.

You can also add an icon to your panel that opens a more traditional version of the main menu. Right-click a blank space on the panel, select Add to Panel, then double-click Traditional Main Menu.

If you already know the name of an application but are not sure how to start it from the main menu, use the Search field in the main menu. Click Computer, type a portion of the application name in the Search field, then press Enter. If the application is installed on your system, the name of the application appears in the Desktop Search dialog box. Click the name to start the program.
