http://askubuntu.com – I recently switched to Gnome 3 (on Onereic 11.10). I used to be a big fan of gnome-do (on Gnome 2), where I heavily used the "files and folders"-plugin. This allows to configure a list of files and folder to be searched on the fly while typing. E.g. starting to type "timesheet" opens "timesheet_2011.ods" from my dropbox account... I can't seem to find anything like this in Gnome 3. I know that there is a list of "recent items", but that's not (exactly) what I'm looking for... So, what I want is this: tell Gnome 3 where my files are (certainly not only in my home folder) have them searched (HowTos)
