Ubuntu: Is there any way to make the Ubuntu Dash a 'start-up application'? [duplicate]


This question already has an answer here:

My desktop is pretty blank and I'd much rather have the useful Dash come up on start-up, is this possible? Surely there is a command that is executed internally when I press the Dash Home button? What is this?


By script, I think it is able. Using xdotool, you can simulate keypress event. Install it by casting : sudo apt-get install xdotool on terminal.

  1. Open Startup Applications

  2. Click 'New' and add xdotool key Super on Command field

  3. Name the startup item and give comment as necessary

  4. Save and try it (I think by relogin is enough)

Super key is default shortcut key to open dash search. Set it to match your setting.
