I didn't explained it properly then. What I meant is just type a few letters and then mintMenu start to search, like it does right now. For example, if I put 'fire', then mintMenu just show me Firefox, so, when I press enter, and, as Firefox it's just the only application that matches the 'fire' I wrote, then it launches. The problem will be when there are more than one application that matches the query I wrote. It happens if we write 'net' for example, there are 3 or 4 matches. In that case we have what is working right now, which is if I press up and down cursor keys I can move through the found applications, and when I've selected the one I want, just press enter and it goes.
So, the change I propose, it's just when there's only 1 application that matches the query, just by pressing enter (without going with cursor keys) the application launches.
I am not programmer, and I understand conceptually it's easy to do, but what I don't know is what this change would affect at code level. Because if you have to rewrite mintMenu from scratch, obviously doesn't worth at all to introduce the change. I just make this feature request if it is easy to implement the idea in the code.
I hope this time is clear!
