I recently installed Fedora 22. In Fedora 21, I could click on the KDE desktop and type a command like "firefox" and it would automatically list a number of programs that I could select to run. I don't remember installing or configuring that. It doesn't happen with Fedora 22. How do I get that run box to appear when I start typing on the desktop? Thanks for your time....

I just tested on my Fedora 22 KDE desktop, and it works just like you said it should. In fact, I did not know this feature :-) I thought you always had to press Alt+F2 first. So it is definitely not removed in Fedora 22.

With F21 I could just click on the desktop and start typing, and the run command would automatically appear. Now it appears only if I use the mouse (alt click) or Alt+space. It was convenient and I was wondering how to get that feature back.
