Re: gufw problem

I am using the Gnome 3 "classic" desktop.

When I push the mouser pointer up into the hot-spot in the upper left corner of the screen, a (sort of) oval pops up containing a magnifying glass icon and the words "Type to search . . . ".  If I type in "gufw", it just bluntly says "No results.".

But if I do ALT-F2, a window pops up saying "Enter a command".  If I type in "gufw" there, Gufw starts up, and seems to work. 

So, yes - it does start that way. 

Now, as to:
"What's wrong with just using a launcher anyway, if it comes up that way?",
maybe I am just autistic.  It just bothers me when things don't work CORRECTLY. 

I guess it just goes to show that for a lot of developers, it is more fun to devise new "features" that "sort of" work than to fix errors and deficiencies.

What's wrong with just using a launcher anyway, if it comes up that way?
