how does alt+f2 work?
Ok, I'm in a *nix context (at least, it could be a KDE context, my gnome days were so long ago I honestly can't remember), and alt+f2 is one of the ways you can launch a program. But because everything in *nix is either a file or a directory, how can alt+f2 find the correct file? It's not that all the possible files are sitting in the same place (because they're most definitely not), so how does it go about finding the one that's actually meant?
It's a completely silly question, I know, but when you're cycling home from work what else are you going to think about? *grin*
Seeing as my irc friends are failing me completely (I'm very disappointed in them!):
